late husband, John McAlpine, well 
known Duluth lumberman, who was 
mysteriously shot and killed in the 
basement of liis East end home on the 
early morning of Aug. 15. 1913. Mr?. 
Sarah K. McAlplue will no longer be 
obliged to face the charge that )-he 
was responsible for his death. 

Attorneys for the London Guaraiiiy 
& Accident company, one of the lliree 
defendant insurance companies which 
she is suing to collect on a $24,000 pol- 
icy, today abandoned the defense that 
Mr. McAlpine wan nuirdtred by the 
beneficiary or that his deati: was pro- 
cured through her connivance. 

The new turn in the case came this 
morning when the question of sub. nit- 
ting special findings to the jury was 
discussed before Judge Dancer in tne 
district court. Counsel for the defend- 
ant company announced that the de- 
fense of murder by the beneficiary 
would be withdrawn and that the com- 
pany would stand upon the defense of 

The charge that Mrs. McAlpine had 
a hand In her husband's death wa» 
made In June. 1914, when the in.suranc* 
companies filed their answers in tho 
suits brought against them by the 
widow. The companies interposed two 
defenses, suicide and murder at lh« 
hands of the beneficiary, to dispute 
the claim of the widow that her hus- 
band was either accidentally killed cr 
shot by a burglar. 

DefenscH Contradictory. 

Although the deft^nses were obvio\i.e-

beginning of the present trial denied 
a motion which would require the de- 
fendant company to elect between 
them. Today the court held that :n

Beavera, who disappeared last week, 
taking with hlra lodRO records, accord-

Boyum has resided in Duluth for four 
or five years, say his friends, and since

officer of the Beavers' organization. 
He has a home on R. F. D. route No. 3, 
near thg city, where his wife and chil- 
dren resldf.

"Others can care for our family bet- 
ter than can I," read a letter which 
friends say Mrs. Boyum received Satur- 
day night from her husband. "As for 
in»-, I am tfoing; to walk ouf across the 
lake until the ice gives way — and that 
will be about all for me." 

Attempts to verify the report con- 
cerning this letter were unsuccessful, 
as Mrs. Boyum telephoned police, mere- 
ly saying that her husband was miss- 
ing, and sh.' had begun to worry about 
1 him. She said nothing about anything 
I being wrong, except that she had not 
I heard from him. 

"On Feb. 9," Mrs. Boyum said, "my 
1 husband left, saying that he was going 
: to Oloquet to organize a Beavers lodge. 
I and that he would be gone several days. 
I have not heard from him since. ' 
On the other hand, other officials or 
^ the lodge today told The Herald that 
( Boyum was in the city until Friday ot 
Saturday. „ .. ... _„ . 

' "He called h<^Y up Friday night and 
said he was going away, and that he 
didn't have time to talk just then, but 
that he would write a letter and giv. 
I her the particulars." said one official. 
"Thfn Saturday morning." he con- 
tinued. "Mrs. Boyum got the letter tell-

"I am losing one of my veteran fire- 
fighters." said Chief Randall, "for 
Capt, McDonald wa.<i one of the 'smoke 
eaters' of the old school. He could be : 
counted one of the most expert fire- ; 
men In the Northwest. Always Judg- i

Capt. McDonald was appointed pipe-

lessors and for many years had the 
trust and confidence of all bene- ! 

"A suit growing out of dissatisfaction 
of some heirs, Bailey said, was settled 
out of court. 

"It appeared," he continued, "that as 
a result of a provision in the lease- 
by which Warren personally with hie 
associates was bound to make repairs 
and that Warren as trustee was bound i| 
to make additions or improvements, 
considerable sums had been charged 
to the additions or improvements ac- 
count that should have been charged 
to the repair account. Our charge was 
that Mr. Brandels, as a lawyer for Mr. 
Warren, who had about this time re- 
tired from the law firm, was Instru- 
mental in maliing the plan for con- ! | 
ducting the business: that he wrote an 
opinion for the beneficiaries holding 
that the plan wa.s legal, protected them 
from the individual liability as part- 
ners and was a proper arrangement. 

"None of the beneficiaries had other 
counsel until 1903. when Edward War- I 
ren employed William S. Youngman. 
with whom I became associated about i 
} 1910. Mr. Brandt-is, I think, drew a: 
will for Mrs. Warren and one for Kd- I 
ward Warren. 1 1 

j "We contended that the lease to Sam- 
i uel D. Warren was not fair to the j 
b'-neflciaries and was one in which 
regard was bad for his personal In-

"We can fix that later," said Mr.

The cleric then called for a plea on 
the first i tdictment. 

"Not gttllty," responded Smith, in a 
firm, reson mt voice. 

To the ► econd indictment he made 
the same response. "When the third 
indictment was presented to him he

a lower tone, as though he had not 
expected so many.

The court set the case for Feb. 21.

i make it $1(',000 on one charge, and per-

j nizr.nce on the other two. Frank B. 
. Thompson, president of the Minnesota

' the bondsmen. They were sworn to 

make disclosures of their property. 
i Mr. Thot ipson said he had unencum- 
, bertd real estate, aside from his home- 
I stead, woith $50,000 to $(50,000. Mr. 
I Dow said that he had only about $2,000 
i In such re il estate, but had $80,000 to 
j $100,000 in personal property. County 
Attorney O'Brien demurred a little at I 
Mr. Dow's showing. "I guess we can ! 
I accept Mr. Dow all right," said Judge ^ 
Dickson. I

was on the other side. Deputy Sheriff i 
Clarke alsi remained close at his side. 
May Attk. Additional indletmenta. 
"If Smith elects to fight," said Mr. 
O'Brien, "1 will ask the grand jury to 
bring in new indictments. Jointly 
charging both Smith and Pickit with 
forgery in the second degree and gr&nd 
larceny in the first degree. There is 
no Questlo » but what forgery has been 
committed, and that both men profited 
by it, but here might be a question as 
to who ppipetrated the forgery." 

These indictments would enable the 
county at orney to place Smith and 
Pickit on trial together.

wliicli favored one set of interests 
against tlie other. 

Charles S. Mellen. former president of 
the New Haven railroad, today notified 
the senate sub-committee Investigating 
the nomination of Louig D. Branries of 
Boston for the supreme court bench, 
that he had no facts to Substantiate 
thp charge of C. W. Barron of Boston 
that Mr. Brandels had "helped wreck 
the N'ew Haven road." 

When the hearing on the nomina- 
tion was resumed today Senator Walsh 
read this telegram from Mr. Mellen: 
"I have no information of any char- 
acter that would be of any value to 
the subcommimttee on the Brandels 
nomination. I have no papers that 
have any bearing on the caae. Under 
these circumstances may 1 not be ex- 
cused from attending.'" 

Senator Walsh said that in the ab- 
sence of Chairman Cliilton he wired 
Mr. Mellen: 

"Mr. Barron testifying before jtidi- 
ciary committee Thursday asserted you 
could testify to facts establishing the 
charge that Brandels was employed 
to wreck the New Haven road. Hav- 
ing In mind your telegram of today, 
please wire whether you can give 
committee any information that will 
-Hhed light on truth or falsity of the 

Han >'o InformatlOB. 
To that Senator Walsh received an- 
other message from Mr. Mellen reit- 
erating that he had no information 
whatever on the subject. 

After some discussion today the com- 
mittee decided to leave open the qifes- 
tlon of whether Mr. Mellen should be 

Senator Clark, said he had supposed 
Mr. Brandels was quite familiar with 
affairs of the New Haven road and 
also that he had read statements from 
Mr. Mellen "assailing -Mr. Brandels in 
most violent terms, so violent that I 
did not see how they could be true.' 
S. W. WInslow, president of the Unit- 
ed Shoe Machinery company, was called 
as the first witness, but yielded to 
Hollls R. Bailey, Boston attorney, who 
gave testimony relative to Mr. Brandels' 
connection with the so-called Warren 
will case. , , 

Mr Bailev first nuide a general 
statement that he had been opposed to 
Mr. Brandels in several l«w cases, but 
considered their relations friendly. Mr. 
Brandeis assisted l^ partner, Samuel 
D. Warren, in fratrting a plan, whlich 
Bailey said placed his partner in 

plan to escape. 

The Ifttfer which the police say links 
the prison-found dynamite with what 
thf-v characterize as a nation-wide piot 
to injure and destroy, was not signed-

questions to the Jury was discueeed by ! 
the court and attorneys out of the ; 
Jury's presence shortly after the tak- ' 
Ing of testimony had been concluded 
this morning. The plaintiffs offered 
two questions, "Did John Mc Alpine 
commit suicide?' and "Was John Mc- 
Alpine murdered by the beneflciaty'' ' 
Tile attorneys for the defendants made 
no serious objection to the queatione 
going to the jtuy, but after the court 
had suggested that the in 
the case be amended so that the de- 
fenses be not contradictoni-. it was an- 
nounced that the murder defense would 
be withdrawn. The question of wheth- 
er or not Mr. McAli'ine wa* murdered 
by the beneficiaiT. therefore, will not 
be submitted. 

Otiier CaiteH Pending. 

Just what H'tiun will be taken with 
reference to the charge of murder In 
tlte other two cases which are pending,

& Casualtv company, aud the other to 
recover $i 5.000 from the Paclflo Mu- 
tual Life Insurance company of Los 
Angeles, ha.« not been disclosed, but It 
It believed that the affirmative defense 
of murder will also be <lropped 'n the.=e 
cases In view of the circumstances 
which have been presented in the case 
now on trial. The- only ques^tlon left 
to litif^^ate in that event will be wheth- 
er Mr. McAlpine c omniitted suicide or 
was aocidentally shot, or was killed by 
a burglar. 

Attorney Theodore Hollister of rovm- 
se! for the defendiint Insurance com- 
pany In the case now being tried this 
morning made the opening argument 
to Oie iurv. He will be followed by 
either Charles O. Baldwin or O. E. Mc- 
Manus of counsel for the plaintiff. The 
jury will be charged by the court to-

RrNuitrd l« Breach of Trii>»*. 

■•This," said Bailey, "as 1 shall call 
attention to later, resulted In a breach 
of trust Mr. Brandeis and hts firm 
acted for fifteen or twenty years as 
counsel for Mr. Warren and associates 
as trustees under an annual retainer 
of $2,000 and for Mr. Warren and 
other individuals as lessors of prop- 
erty under a retainer. These Interests 
were antagonistic In some important 
particulars, and the result was that 
the bencflciarirs. one of whom was my 
cliv-'nt, suffered financial damage in the 
sum of hundreds of thou-sands of dol- 
lars " 

Bailey explained that S. D Warren, 
Jr aud Mr. Brandeis were In college 
together and later formed a law part- 
nership. Warren was the son of Sam- 
uel D*^ warren, Sr.. a P^P^ "f ""/'^; 
turer, who left an estate of $21,000,000 
to his widow and five ihUdreri, one of 
whom, Edward Warren, Bailey's client, 
never was connected with the paper 
business. A financial arrangement was 
made for carrying on the business 

"First." said Mr. Bailey, "the widow 
and all the children conveyed their in- 
urests in the properly /hrough Mk

mrstees operi.ted the paper mills, the

to rarrv on the business for the benefit 
of all the heirs. J^ 

"\Miat was done was that these three 
lessees by authority gUen In the deed 
made a lease of live property to Mr. 
Btaildcls and through him to S. D. 
Warren Fiske Warren, another son. 
and Malson. who proceeded to operate 
the mills. The rental termn were 6 
ner cent interest on the property and 
half the net profits. That arrangement 
resulted in S. D. Warreti receiving corn- 
services In the first 

view of the fact that the evidence had 
been allowed to be presented on both 
theories, the pleadings should be 
amended so as not to present contra- 
dictory defenses to the Jury. If the 
company did not choose to so ainend 
Its pleadings In the case, the court In- 
timated that It would comment upon 
the inconsistency of the contradictory 
claims In its charge to the jury. Later 
In the morning the attorneys for the

Did He Commit Saieldef 

When the Jury lakes the case tomor- 
row morning, in addition to bringing 
in a general verdict, it will be asked to 
answer a special question as to the 
fact of suicide. The question has been 
framed as follows: "Did John McAlpine 
commit suicide?" The jury will be ex- 
pected to answer this question "yes" or 
"no' and will also return a general 
verdict either for the plaintiff or de- 
fendant. If the question Is answered 
"no" the general verdict will pre- 
sumably be for the plaintiff for the 
amount sued for. If answered "yea 
the general verdict will be for the de-

Some Radical Alterations 

Made By Currency 


Washington, Feb. 15. — The adminis- 
tration's bili to establish a system of 
land banks drafted by a joint congrea- 
sional committee was favorably re- 
ported today to tht senate, but with 

radical alterations by the banking 
and currency committee.

five commlpsloners 10 control the sys- 
tem vas discarded by the tommlttee 
in favor 'f < ontrol by a treasury de- 
partment bureau, to he known as the 
Federal farm loan bureau, under the 
general .saperv'slon of a Federal farm 
loan board, t5;e latter ( onsistlng of 
the secretary of the treasury and four 
presidential appointees. 

New provisions would authorize the 
investment of postal savings funds in 
farm loan bonds and would permit the 
Ireasurv department to keep up the 
$6,000,000 on deposit with the land 
banks. The committee struck out a 
clause (rlv'ng the land banks authority

Thin Men and Women 

Ht-re •■. a Safe and Ku-^y Way l>y Whirh 
You May Gain 10 Poumis «)r More 
of Solid. Healthy, Peniianent Tlesh 

Thin, nervous undeveloped men and 
women everywhere are heard to say, "I 
can't understand why 1 do not get fat. 
r eat plenty of good nourishing food " 
The reasonis just this: You cannot get 
fat, no matter how mucii you eat, un- 
less your digestive organs assimilate 
the fat-making elements of your food 
instead of passing them out through 
the body as waste. 

What Is needed is a means of gently 

urging the assimilative functions of the 

stomach and intestines to absorb the 

1 oils and fats and hand them over to 

the blood, where they may reach the i 
'starved, shrunken, run-down tissues 
and build them up. The thin person's 
body is like a dry sponge— eager and I 
I hungry for the fatty materials of which j 
It la Ijetng deprived by the failure of | 
the alimentary, canal to take thenn 
from the food. A splendid way of . 
working to overcome this sinful waste , 
of flesh building elements and to stop , 
the leakage of fats is to tr>- Sargol. the 
famous fle.«h building agent that has 
been so widely sold in America In recent 
years Take a little Sargol tablet with 
every meal and see If your cheeks don't 
riulckly fill otit and rolls of firm, 
healthy flesh form over your body, cov- 
ering each bony angle and projecting 
noint Boyce drug store and otl>er good 
druggists have Sargol or can get it 
from their wholesaler, and will refund 
vour maney if you are not satL<fied 
with the gain in weight It produces as j 
Slated on the guarantee In each larfee 
package It is inexpensive, easy to take 
and highy efficient. i 

Note- Sargol is recommended onl> 
as a fle'^h builder and while excellent I 
results in cases of nervous indigestion, j 
etc have been reported, care should be 
taken about using it unless a gain of : 
weight is desired. — Advertisement.

Rougfi or Ctiapped Skin 

To remove roughness, chaps, freckles, 
blotches, or any complexion difficulty, 
the best thing to do is to remove tha 
skin itself. This is easily, painlessly 
and inexpensively done by the applica- 
tion of ordinary mercolized wax, pro- 
curable at any drug store in the orig- 
inal one-ounce package. The wax ab- 
sorbs the defective outer skin, a littlo 
each day, gradually bringing the sec- 
ond laver of skin to the surface. The 
pores are unclogged and the f|ic« 
breathes in the life-giving oxygen. T ha 
new skin is beautifully soft and spot- 
less, bearing the healthy glow of youth 
Just apply the wax as you would cold

For Catarrhal Deafness 

and Head Noises 

Here in America there is much suf- 
ftrinj? from catarrh and head noises. 
American people would do well to con- 
■1d*-r the method employed by thf Eng- 
lish to combat thia insidious disease. 
Evfryone knows how damp the HnRlish 
climate is and how dampness affects 
those suffering fri)m catarrah. In hlne- 
land they treat catarrhal deafness and 
he-ad noises as a conatituiional disease 
and use an internal remedy for ii that 
is really very efficacious. 

Sufferers who could scarcely hear a 
watch tick tell how they had their 
hearing restored by this Kniflish treat- 
ment to such an extent that the tick 
of a watch was plainly audible seven 
and eight Inches away from either ear. 

Therefore, if you know some one who 
is troubled with catarrh, catarrhal 
deafness or head noise."", cut out this 
formula and hand it to them and you 
will have been the means of saving 
some poor sufferer perhaps from total 
deafness. The prescription can be 
-easily prepared at home for about T6c 
and is made as follows: 

From your druggist obtain 1 oz. of 
Parmit ^double strength), about 76c 
worth. Take this home, and add to It 
% pint of hot water and 4 ounces of 
granulated sugar; stir until dissolved. 
Take a table.spoonful four times a day. 

Farmlnt is used in this way not only 
to redu<e by tonic action the inflam- 
mation and swelling of the Eustachian 
Tubes, and thus to equalize the air 
pressure on the drum, but to correct 
any ••xc»>.ss of secretions in the middle 
ear, and the results it gives are u.<«ually 
remarkably quick and effective. 

Every person who has catarrh in 
HI .\ foini should give this recipe a trial 
and fr<>e themselves from this destruc- 
tive disease. — Advertisement. 




What a man aims at in 
life does not always insure 
his success. 

For instance — it is well 
to ATM to have money in 
the bank, bnt to have a 
Savings I>ook in your own 
name and to cleposit a 
tixed amount reguhirly is 
what really counts. 

This luink assists you in 
YOUR MM to reach fi- 
nancial independence by 
adding interest at the rate 
of 3'v; per \ear.

"The work .,f the modern churoh la 
to socialize. » du<ate and evangelize," 
said the speaier. "The present idea 
of the function of the church is not to 
have one serm )n a week preached from 
a one-roon church, but rather to liavc 
a church large enough for many ac- 
tivities and to have it open for service 
exerxday in tie week.' 

Dr. l<eeman who is pastor of the 
First Baptist church of St. I*aul, a re-

preailied last niglit. He has kept the

Use "Tiz" for Tender, 

Puffed-up, Burning, Cal- 
loused Feet and Corns. 

People who are forced to stand on 
their feet all day know what sore, ten- 
der, sw^eaty, burning feet mean. They 
use "Tiz," and "Tiz" cures their feet 
right up. It keeps feet in perfect con- 
dition. "Tiz" is the only remedy in 
the world that draws out all tlie pois- 
onous exudations which puff up the 
feet and cause tender, sore, tired, ach- 
ing feet. It instantly stops the pain 
in corns, callouses and bunions. It's 
simply glorious. Ah! how comfort- 
able your feet feel after u."ing "Tiz."

face in pain. Your shoes won't tight- 
en and hurt your feet.

"Of course some methods of farm

The farmer should get a good method,

as to determine his labor income, or the

No Risk in Trying It — Cannot 
Possibly Harm. 

You take no risk in trying Poslam, 
the skin remedy, as 'af\ experiment, to 
see what it can do. It is absolutely 
harmless. And the burden of proof 
is on Poslam — it .must show results, 
visibly, or you will not continue to 
use it", much less recommend it tc oth- 
ers as thousands are doing. 

That Poslam pcssesses a merit most 
unusual in healing skin diseases is ap- 
parent from first application when 
itching stops and in Improvement day 
by day, until the skin is clear.

Mrs. Milton McCabe. of 2328 Roslyn

crv about adulterated food.«; the ma 
joflty of manufactured food must 
have additions made to it to render It 
more appetizing. All adulterant* 

therefore are not harmful. 

All mixed mustard has flour or corn- 
starch added to it. to make it smooth 
tasting and without it would be too 
pungent. Salt will not flow freely In 
Ita natural state, so fine farina is 
added to the best table salts. Many 
scrupulous housewives will not buy 
butter if the color is not golden and 
butter is only beautifully yellow when 
the cattle have natural feed. The but- 
coloring war has continue<l for 
but it is safe to say that our 
most popular creamery butter is liked 
best when its color pleases the eye. 
This deception will continue in spite 
of legislation. .. , j, . 

As a state of dread affords a direct 
opening to di.««ease. It is likely alarm- 
ists are as dangerous as adulterations.

Egyptian Symbolism 

Is Theme of Address 

Misa Jessie Case of the art depart-

Illustrated talk on "Egyptian Design 
and Symbolism" yesterday afternoon 
at the meeting of the art history class 
of the Twentieth Century club, which 
was hold In the library club room. 

The drawings which Miss Case had 
made Illustrated the designs employed 
by the Egvptians from the earliest 
times to the period that marked the 
height of art in that country. The 
zigzag line, with its many modifica- 
tions of design and color; the wave 
line, which was a stepping stone to 
the elaborate scroll forms; the swas- 
tlca, which wa.s used by the NortI 
American Indians and the ancient 
Chinese, as well as by the Bgyp- 
tlans; the feather design, the scarab, 
lotus and papyrus were described and 
Illustrations were shown.

Women have the advantage of men 
in that their mode of dressing serves 
better to hide their lack of develop- 
ment and their deformities. Granting 
this. It is not presumptuous to claim 
that there are just as many women as 
men who may be called good form. 

Women, if they have any physical 
proportions that will pass muster, take 
sore pains to set them off to the best 
advantage and they are vastly more 
successful in covering up their defects 
than are men. A man's tailor does a 
very good service when he builds up

women of making themselves fair to

ID you ever 
is such a thing as a family 
vocabulary in almost ev«ry 
family? ,. ^ 

The other day I was listen- 
ing to one of the members of 
the family who was talking 
over the telephone. By the way, when 
It is permissible, don't you love to do 
that? It Is so interesting to recon- 
struct the other side of the conversa- 
tion from what you hear and then find 
out afterwards if you were right. 
Ouite like a game. To return to the 
main road, I heard her say. "Yes, 1 d 
like to come. I don't see any reason 

why I can't, and I will unless " ^"° 

quick as a flash, before she could fin- 
ish, my mind supplied the rest of the 
phrase, "unless something unforeseen 
turns up." And that was just what 
she said. 

How did I know? Well, I asked 
myself thftt question and answered — 
because that is part of our family vo- 
cabulary. Given these clrcumstancest 
that is what any member of our family 
would probably say. 

A day or two later I had another 
instance of family exclusiveness in 
the matter of vocabulary. 

DU Von Bt*t Henr the Word 

Some member of the family used 
the word "rambunctious." "Where did 
you get that word?" asked the visiting 
iady. "I never heard it before. Did 
you coin it for the occasion? It cer- 
tainly was pat." (It had been xiaecl to 
describe the actions of my small neph- 
ew when pent up in the house on a 
rainy day.) • 

"Never heard the word 'rambunc- 
tious?' " we exclaimed. "Why that's a 
common word!" And so it does seem 
to us, because it was a favorite word 
of my nother's. Doubtless, there are 
reader friend* who wiU recocnlse U «« 

realize that ther« ! a part of their family rocabulary. Just 

as' there will be others like the visit 
Ing lady who never heard of It. 
WoTilm With a FUtot. 

Certain words, like that one, are 
peculiarly of the family atmosphere. 
The sound ot thean w-ill bring bttck j 
one's childhood as poignantly as the I 
most memory - freighted fragrance. | 
Two other woids which I can recall 1 
offhand are "spudge" in the phrase, 
"Now let's spudge round and get this 
done quickly." and "rldeout" In. "What 
have you children been doing? This 
room looks like rldeout." 

The flow of family life grooves the 
mind into certain ruts as the flow of 
rain water grooves the hillside. 

The Family Menn Gets in a Rnt. 

The family menu is one groove — too 
much of a groove in a good many fam- 

And the family vocaublary is an- 
other groove which- also may become 
too deep. 

Of course it i» fine to have as a 
family possession word.<< with a flavor 
like those I have quoted, but one can 
get into too much of a rut in the use 
of common words. 

We ought not to he ahle to tellwhat 

another Is going to say, because we 

ought to employ different words for 

the same eenas from time to time, and 

keep ourselves from saying things In a 

routine way.

Question — Is a woman safe In the 
hands of a man bent on suicide? Should 
she marry such a one? 

Answer — If the man is otherwise per- 
fectly sane and this threat of suicide 
Is the only sign of mental unbalance, 
she might risk it. - But don't marry 
him because of the threat, if you don't 
want to anyway. Don't let him bully 
you into mstrryintr hiaft; That's a cow- 
ard's trick.

Food for the Baby. 

•^f, after every effort is made, th« 
mother's milk supply is not adequate, 
the father should know that clean, 
fresh cows' milk is the best sub.«>titute, 
and should see that the baby gets such 
milk and that the mother has the ad- 
vice. of the doctor on Its preparation. 

"He should know that nearly one- 
third of all Infant deaths occur as the 
result of digestive disturbance brought 
on chiefly by faulty feeding. 

"He should know that soothing 
syrups are dangerous, that pacifier* 
are both needless and injurious, that 
the baby needs rest and regular hours 
o-f sleeping and should not kept up 
late nor handled too much. 

"He should know the importance ot 
good surroundings to the baby. Tho 
baby need,s fresh air and sunlight as 
much as any plant. Like a plant, the 
baby will droop and die If kept in • 
dark, close room, deprived of nature'*

"Cleanliness in and abo«t the home 
Is even more Important to the baby 
than to the adult. Baby cannot pro- 
tect itself against dust, dirt and file*.

You can keep your hair at its very 
best by washing it with a teaspoonfui. 
of canthrox dissolved in a cup of hot 
water, afterward rinsing thoroughly 
with clear water. One finds that th« 
hair dries quickly and evenly, is uu» 
streaked, bright, soft and very fluffy, 
so flufify in fact, that it looks mora 
abundant than it is, and bo soft that 
arranging it becomes a pleasure. Thia 
simple, inexpensive shampoo cleanse* 
the hair and scalp thoroughly of all 
dandruff and dirt, and leaves a clean, 
wholesome feeling. All scalp irrita-

Exhibit of David Ericson's Work 

Is Rare Treat For Duluthians 

Tn this day of futurist and cubist 
work where m?re paint and technique 
wre tb>- proioinent features. It Is 
H decidedly refreshing feeling to find 
pictures that have the soul and per- 

nonality of the artist expressed in a 

eoniplete and harmonious manner. To 

feel that the .<5Mbject has b»>en treated 

'Acrording to its own individual and 

paitKulai- i>f.M!ty. 

A."? soon as t n* enters the exhibit 
of piciur..*; at Lngd's art store the 
*peciator fi. !.« that David Ericaun 
paints beeaiise h< f » ♦ 1.x it. 

Mr. Kricsons worli impresses you as 
being very pf;'.«onal <^hich is the most 
Important thing in art) and the ex- 
nuislie loveliness and distinction of his 
pictures should give any lover of the 
beautiful a great pleasure on bf ing 
able to visit this exhibition — not once, 
but many times. 

Mr. Ericson's most recent work, a 
*t!iking portrait of Dr. J. J. Ekiurd 
of this city, is attracting a groat deal 
of interest and comment and is fon- 
•Idered by Mr. Erii-son to be his best 
portrait. The portrait is r.otnbly rich 
and luminuu.s m coloring. th»- "depth 
and perspective b'^ing exceptional — 
while the eyes, so invariably flat and 
lifeless in most poiiraits — fairly glow 
with life and feeling. 

"Twilight on the North Pea," the blue 
Sreeri of torquoiae set in a frame of 
gold, seemed a complete expres.sion of 
poetry — of David Erioson poetry — 
which i.s so versatile in it.a many sub- 
jects < )nr fairly felt bathed in a gold- 
en atmosphere upon turning to "The 
Cedars." a picture full of sunlight and 
painted f>n the Hud.son. From the 
golden ;(.n. .s of the Hud.son to the sil- 
ver symphony, "The Del fry of Bruges." 
seemed a far cry. but again one im- 
mediately finds himself falling into the 
restful, almost tad. quality of a late 
winter afternof)n in Bruges. 

"Across the River" — a scene painted 
In Holland — is like a piece of tapestry 
In its subdued qualit.v of cr-lors and 
throughout the exhibition is this sense 
of delicacy and refinement. 

There i.s a wet-lotiking. breez.v scene 
from flolland called "Reflections." 
whifh is cool and r»"freshing. There 
is "f^arly Morning..- -as exquisite in 
Its composition as the simpliest Jap- print — peaceful, lovely and still, 
like a mirror tone and m.ost appeal- 
ing in its distinction. 

"The r>utch Cow." which is espe- 
cially apprfciated by artists because of 
it.«! clever drawing, was done In one 
setting by Mr. FJricpon. the cow "hold- 
ing the position" with commendable 

Another remarkable bit of coloring 
and realism is of one of the cansils 
of Bruffc.s vith the spire of St. .lacque 
ithowing in the distance, the old briilg-^ 
M'ith its arches and reflections under- 
neath, the white ."wans swimming 
about making up a picture distinctly 
picturesqtie and appealing. Then 
there is the "Breezy t)iiy" painted in 

Holland and charming in its motion 
and color, ai d so on Indefinitely until 
one wishes there wf re moic time and 
many more .ipportunities to enjoy the 
rare expressions of such a di.=tingushed 
artist as Duiutbs nwn Davjd Erlcson.

The show at the Xew i'.rand. which 
opened a three-day engagement yester- 
day, was not up to the standard iisual- 
ly maintained by that playhouse. There 
was a sad lack of "punch" in the lead- 
ing acts. Good-sized audiences were 
present at all performances. 

Milt Wood is but mildly diverting as 
an entertainer. His act consists of 
frtorits, songs and dancing. 

Gtrtrude-Lee Folsom and her asso- 
. ae players appeared in a comedy 
t:k' tch entitled "The Gold Cure." While 
there are some clever lints in the 
let. the plot la tim«-woi'n and the

one a. blonde, the 
other a brunette —

would you do'.'

in love with yo>i— one professing her 
love In passionate appeal, the other in 
quiet entroaties--whlch direction would 
vour conscience bid you turn?

Safety Head. 

Automatic sprinkling systems in all 
the public schools of the city are urged 
by Commissioner Silbersteln, head of 
the safety division, in a letter mailed to 
the board of education this afternoon. 

The safety head would have the 
school board install the sprinkling sys- 
tems In the basement of each school. 

Commissioner Silberstein'.g sugges- 
tion is made at the recommendation of 
Fire Chief Randall, who recently in- 
spected the local buildings. These 
sprinklers arc In use in all the large 
cities of the country and are a great 
help in reducing the fire hazards. 

"These sprinklers." said Commis- 
sioner Silbersteln this morning in ex- 
plaining his communication to the 
school board, "can be installed at a 
very little cost. They will prevent 
fires from getting beyond control and

a handful from Europe to invade and over-

people would sit back with a silly grin, let- 
ting them do it. 

Doubtless General Miles, having served

tecti"!!!-^ .\ ho are clamoring for a return 
to t'; l.y44.>iie days of unrestrained tariff 
lo.>t that characterized the heyday of the 
Rt-puitlit-an party. 

Tlie [>lay is ended. The curtain has been 
ruiitj .iu\ II The audience has departed and 
the Itsrhts have been turned out. 

N". NCI again will the excesses of the Ding- 
ley and McKinley tariff laws be possible 
in thii country; and those who are crying 
for a fruiru to them are wasting breath. 

V\hy^ Because it would be impossible 
t" ^i- urn to them. Because a return to 
tlreru vv.uld be a disaster unparalleled in 
the couniiy's history. 

Tiu basis on which those tariff subsidy 
exi .' ere possible was what was called 

a "la\t'..iblc balance oi trade" — that is. that 
V- rM.rted more than we imported — that 
, . :.l more than we bought. We did this 
thitikiiii-: ii good business and prosperity. 

It looked like a profitable business, be- 
caur^e most people measured it in term? of 
privaie commerce. But the only thing that 
made it pos-.ible was that America was in 
debt to Kurope. and had to pay interest on 
that dtl)t These payments were made in 
goods — the only way international debts 
C.\N be paid. So. to pay our debt to Eu- 
rope, ue sold more than we bought. 

But it will be a new world when the war 
is over. America will no longer be in debt 
to r urope. Europe will be in debt to 
Amcri. a. I'lic balance of trade MUST turn 
the other way. so Kurope can pay its debt 
and the interest on its debt — in goods, the 
only v\ as it is possible to pay. 

til igiaad has grown rich with an enor- 
iimju.s balance ot trade against her — sim- 
ply because Fngland had tremendous in- 
\,-.tiun!- iibroad, and took the interest and 
d. - 111 goods. 

\\ 1 .11 \inerica is the world's creditor, the 
baiaiice "i trade will be "against" America, 
SM'i.U I. V cause it will be no longer paying 
and dividends abroad, but will be 
colUctiii.t; interest and dividends from 
abroad, and it will have to collect them in 

li, aa now seems likely, this country 
change^ from a debtor nation — only a debt- 
or t aiK'ii can have a "favorable balance of 
trade" — t > a creditor nation — a creditor na- 
tion ninst have the balance of trade against 
it in ■>; di r io collect its just dues — then just 
IS ^u^el.v as the sun rises tomorrow, it will 
have to import more than it exports, and 
no tariff law imaginable will change that 

For that reason, if for no other, it is the 
• day after the fair for the ultra protection- 
ists. Tlie siiuation that gave thera their 
ca->t* exists no longer. Mighty changes have 
come about, and no tariff law that human 
ingenuity can devise will bring hack the 
t>ld order. Nor will anybody tie seeking 
the old order, for the new will be vastly 
aiore profitable than the old. 

Yet there are other reasons, too, why 
■:h:> day of the ultra protectionist ii done 

One of them is this: that hereafter this 
nation will look more to foreign trade than 
it ever has before. To sell, a nation must 
^uy. No nation can erect tall tariff bar- 
riers against foreign goods and expect to 
lell across that barrier. It cannot be done. 
Kot alone because we cannot expect na- 
tions' to buy from us if we do not buy from 
them, but because it is impossible. Inter- 
.lational trade is not selling a yard of calico 
for fifteen cents; it is exchanging fifteen 
cent.s' worth of calico for fifteen cents' 
ifcorth ui sugar; and in the exchange both 

Senator Cummins of Iowa, invited to 
place hinueli >n show in this state, where 
the Republicai s are about to vote for him 
i'.)r the presid mtial nomination largely by 
default, spoke an interesting piece at the 
Lincoln's birtliday banquet of a St. Paul 
standpat Repi blican organization. 

Mr. C ummii s invited Republicans to "get 
together," but offered— aside, inferentially. 
from himself— utterly nothing to get to- 
gether on but the ne'gative platform of op- 
position to the Democratic administration. 
He had much to ?ay about the tariff, 
about foreign relations, and about Mexico 
—and on the last >ubject he grew actually 
positive, and from his picture one might 
draw the conclusion— if it is news— that 
matters in M xico are hi rather a distress- 
ing state. But all this matter was simply 
what you wotdd expect from a Republican, 
making a Rej ublican speech at this time. 

It is easy enough for partisans of the 
'out" party to "get together" on that basis. 
They are together on it now, of course. 

But partisans do not decide elections, 
and there wasn't a trace of anything in all 
Mr' Cummin .'s long speech to attract the 
threat body of independent citizens who 
decide presidential elections. 

Hi> speed is a screed of criticifif. of 
deli'>crate fa ilt-tinding which deliberately 
evades everj- good thing in the opposition: 
aud even in his faulMinding, at »«:>me of 
the most critical points, he betrays an in- 
ward conviction that he could hardly have 
done better Himself. 

How easy that sort of a speech is, and 
how fruitless and inconclusive, you can dis- 
cover by an experiment. 

Take the best man you know, your best 
friend in the woHd. Cultivate toward him 
a spirit of enmity, of envy, of unreasoning 
hostility, and then analyi:e Tiim and his 

You could make quite a speech, then, 
cataloguing ihe faults of this good man. and 
the attributes which mean hate can twist 
into faults. ' 

That, in a large sense, is what Mr. Cum- 
mins, a candidate for president, attempted 
to do in his St. I'aul speech with Woodrow 
Wilson, president. 

And in this sort of campaign year par- 
tisan criticism, the greater the success of 
the "in" party, the bitterer and more freji- 
zied the efiorts of the "out^" to belittle 
and discredit its efforts. 

There was not in all this speech a word 
of constructive program. There was not a 
suggestion i»f improvement upon the poli- 
cies criticized. At its most effective, it was 
mere rhetoric. It was an invitation to the 
country to "go Republican* blindly and 
take a chaicc on the results. 

And this, mind you, to a country pros, 
perous and at peace under the adnynistra- 
tion so attacked, and with Its great prob- 
lems being worked out by that adminis- 
tration san.'ly and wisely!

General, we marvel at you! 
How cot Id you possibly have fallen so 
far behind the times? 

There is hardly a cheap magazine that 
hasn't exposed your ignorance in several 
successive ssnes. There is hardly a maga- 
zine write —aged about twenty-five, ex 
perience nil, and composed of seventy-five 
per cent efrontery, twenty per cen» rhet- 
oric, four !»er cent study and one per cent 
common st use — who hasn't time after time, 
in articles published and articles rejected 
for want <>f space, shown how little you 
know aboi t war- 
General Miles ought to read some of 
these articles, and he wouldn't be talking 
that way. It is the simplest thing in the 
world. Some European country gets it 
into its hrad that there is plunder in the 
\aults of America, and comes after it with 
a fleet of Aarships and transports carrying 
an army. The United States navy con- 
fronts it, ;md a midshipman in the bow of 
the leading hostile vessel blows a deadly 
missile th ough a peashooter. The Amer- 
ican navy is no more. 

The great guns of the coast defenses be- 
gin firing at the advancing fleet, but are 
silenced w about four minutes by the guns 
from the jnemy's vessels.

makes a tand against the invaders, but a

extiemely difrtcult to keep even our present 
meager army and navy up to their full com- 
plement. Our recruiting methods are ener- 
getic and alluring, yet men fall to enlist. 
We could expand our regular army to ^OO.OOO

paying for property for military use what- 
ever is necessary to compete with industrial 
employments, but reject the principle of pay- 
ing for labor at rates to compete with in- 
dustry. Property Is not expected to serve us 
except for adequate pay; labor is expected to 
8er\e us partly for pay and partly out of 
patriotism. Put Iftbor on the same basis as 
property, and we shall not have serious 
trouble In recruiting. The flnanclal burden 
will be greater, to be sure. That is the reul 
dlftlcutty with the voluntary system In time 
of peace. 

Washington. Feb. 16. — (Special to The 
Herald.) — Our dear, delightful Republican 
brethren, are sorely distressed because Pres- 
ident Wilson has changed his mind regard- 
ing certain subjects. They seem to think 
it dial eputabl«». if not impious. They are 
for "preparedness," but resent the fact that 
Wilson is for It, too. because he did not in- 
sist on it a year ago. They are for a tariff 
commission, but they can see nothing but 
atrocious profligacy In W^ilson's advocacy of 
It because, under very different conditions, 
he was not for it during the life or the 
last congress. 

Th«^ir talk is childish. What are they 
going to think of Abraham Lincoln, who 
made one of the must radical changes. In a 
polltli al way, on record between March, 
1861, and September, 1862? Ln his inaugural 
address he declared that he had no legal 
right to interfere with African slavery In 
any of the states, and that certainly he 
had no disposition to do so. Eighteen 
months thereafter he issued his famous 
emancipation proclamation that, politically 
speaking, brought freedom to the negro. 
And what do they think of the Republican 
party itself? The day after Bull Run, in 
July. 1861. with but two negative votes in 
the house of representatives of the Thirty- 
seventh congress — Thaddeus Stevens, a 
Pennsjlvania Abolitionist, and Henry C. 
Burnett, a Kentucky Secessionist — the Re- 
publican party adopted the famous Critten- 
den resolution, pledging the government to 
the maintenance of slavery In the states. 
That resolution also passed the Republican 
senate with but one or two dissenting 

So it will be observed that if Lincoln and 
his party had not "changed." the negro 
might have been. In bondage at this blessed 
moment. "Flopped." I believe the Hon. 

Hampv Moore calls it.

it mighty bad. 

This tariff commission that Moore ana his 
j^rty are bloviating about was invented to 
-take the place of r.ciprocity and re-enact 
the hypocrisy t.l^t came from that piece of 
;pretense. For years the G. O. P. was going

and the McKiiflej' administration appointed 
John A. Kasson to negotiate certain rec-

that he should do so. But Kayson, the great- 
est man Iowa ever produced except DoUiver, 
like PoUiver had a pronounced streak of

,hl^ treaties. They were sent to the sen- 
ate and every one of them — about a dozen — 
there slept the sleep that knows no wak- 
ing. And if the Republicans should again 
attain power we would get another batch of 
Aldrichisni, and the tariff commission would 
go tlie way reciprocity went. 

The writer of this is not a game.ster, but 
he has been told by experts that It Is ex- 
ceedingly disconcerting to have your "bluff" 
"called" in the game of poker. Hampton 
Moore and his party with a bobtail straight 
have "bluffed," and Wilson with a royal 
flush has "called." That Is all. Why should 
a tariff commission be lovely when a Re- 
publicHn high tariff is in existence and hor- 
rid when a Democratic low tariff has sup- 
planted it? Answer that. Hampy. 
• » • 
It reminds of an incident In EngHsn pol- 
itics. Mr. Gladstone brought in a bill to 
dis'-stablish the church and was beaten 
in the commons. There was a dissolution 
of parliament and an appeal to the country 
with the result that the Conservative party 
triumphed and that wonderful man. Disraeli, 
got power. He was a consummate politician 
with a posltve genius for statecraft, like 
Wil.-on. The first thing he did was to se- 
cure the enactment of a law dise-'tabli-shing 
the Irish church and he brought to its sup- 
port the entire aristocrac.v of Kngland. Olad- 
sione and his party were utterly astounded 
and Intensely chagrined when it was mani- 
fest that the law was wholesome and met 
with universal approval. That was a "flop" 
with a vengeance. 

• 'In explanation Disraeli said the Conserva- 
fives found the Liberals in bathing and ap- 
propriated their raiment that had been left 
on the bank of the stream. 
, That is all Wilson has done in this tar- 
iff commission move. He has stolen Hamny 
M'»ore's clothes. No wonder Hampy is as 
mad as a wet hen. and, between whimpers, 
tries to drop Into ridicule, and he makes as 
.flat a "ridiculosity" of it as that denounced 
by Charles Sumner.

Mankato Review: The Duluth Herald is 
asking answers to the questions, "Which 
are the ten worst faults a man can have 
and which are the ten best virtues?" Un- 
less The Herald insists on specific enumera- 
tion of vices and virtues, the following 
should be a satisfactory answer: The ten 
worst faults are those which we are free 
from but which some of our fellow men 
are addicted to. The ten best virtues are 
those that we can claim as our own. Mod- 
esty (one of these virtues), forbids that we 
should go Into details either with respect 
to the other nine virtues we possess or the 
vices that we are free from.

of getting votes enough against him. 

A Seven Years' Job. 

Worthington Progressive: The Duluth 
Herald of Jan. 31 comes to our desk with a 
strong argument in favor of a revision of 
the state Constitution. There Is no aoubt 
but that the government of the state, like 
most states where constituions have become 
hoary wlh age, has become, as the editor 
says, "unwieldy, clumsy, inefficient, extrava- 
gant and wasteful." Our legislature is too 
large for effective work and there are too 
many commis.sions and heads of bureaus 
and departments. These have crept in grad- 
ually and there Is no telling where the end 
will be. 

But constitutions are hedged about by so 
many safeguards, and rightly so. ttiat It 
takes a long time to arrange for and ef- 
fect a change. 

Arrangements to put the question to a 
vote of the people cannot be made until 
1917; the vote would be taken in 1918 for 
the calling of a convention. The members 
of the convention would be elected In 1920. 
The convention would meet in January, 1921. 
The Constitution would be submitted to the 
people in 1922 and would be effective Janu- 
ary. 1923. Thus it is seen that it would 
be seven years from now before a new Con- 
stitution could be put Into effect, and this 
is providing everything moved smoothly and 
with dispatch. Usually there are hitches and 

It Is plain, therefore, that if a new Con- 
stitution is needed, of which there seems to 
be little doubt, the sooner the matter Is 
taken up the better. 

The Changes of One Short Year 

EditotikI In ttie Sm Kram-ijco BullMin. 

In almost all outward aspects the t'nited 
States is as it was in February, 1915, and 
where it is not the sanic it is, in a material 
way. bettered. For 76 per cent of our pop- 
ulation, perhaps, there has been no great 
change. 'I'he war has been a tragic story, 
growing drearier as weeks went by, but not 
coming directly Into everyday life. The ma- 
chinery of production, worked by the ob- 
scure majority, has been operated with but 
slight changes. The war industries ara 
small In comparison with the staple national 
Industries which go steadily on, in go<^A 
years and in bad. People must be fed. 
clothed, housed and entertained, whatever 
the course of world events. 

Yet the country Is hardly the same that 
it was a year ago. Its thoughts are on dif- 
ferent subjects. It is a great deal less calm 
and a great deal more confused. It listens 
first to one authority and then to another, 
and is conscious of vast i.«»sues which have 
iioi been specifically presented. Leaders on 
whose steadiness it depended have proved 
as fluctuating; as weather vanes. Hints of 
vague dangers have been whispered In Its 
ears. New ideals of citizenship have been 
suggested. Theories that used to be spoken 
only In quiet places are now maintained In 
the newspapers and magazines and on the 
speakers' platforms. Brought up to believe 
that the people own the state, the nation 
is suddenly confronted with the imported 
dogma that the state owns the penpie. ue- 
mocracy, won as a series of privileges. Is 
being presented as a series of duties. 
Abstruse metaphysics, concealing possible 
tyrannies, is being dragged shrinking int'> 
politics. There are those who would super- 
sede the ideals of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence with fantastic Hegelisms and 
Bernhardisms. A period is known by the 
principles which !t accepts without argu- 
ment. In the United States principles of 
freedom and tranquility which were once ar- 
ticles of universal faith are now lightly 

These changes of thought are footprints 
of history. The Immediate future of this 
democracy — if it Is still to be called that — 
depends not at all upon an>^hing material, 
hut upon the popular conception of democ- 
racy and of the things which affect de- 
mocracy No hostile navy waits outside our 
ports, but a hostile idea Is on the threshold 
of our national consciousness.

The Old Man 

Rippling Rhymes 

By Walt Mason I 


It's good to work, with might and 
main, until the workday ends : it's good 
to work, in sun or rain — but do not 
work your friends. The toiler's worthy 
of his hire, wherever he may be, though 
he be punishing a lyre or chopping 
down a tree: though he be furrowing 
the loam, that harvests may abound, 
'tis labor brings the bacon home, and 
makes the wheels go round. Renown 
for toiling with a vim the true distinc- 
tion lends; so work until the light 
grows dim — but do not work your 
friends. The willing worker seldom 
sees the lean w^olf at his door; he has 
his weinerwurst and cheese and other 
o^rub in store. Men's admiration he 
ct)minands. no matter where he wends; 
he does his work with both his hands, 
but does not work his friends. There 
is no sadder, punker sight, in any 
neighborhood, than is the husky, lazy 
wight who's cut out work for good. 
We all iTave seen his maudlin tear, 
have heard his w hining tones : a guilder 
there, a kroner here, from all of us he 
bones. To gain a dime this shameless 
shirk to lowest depths descends; for 
when a man quits useful work, he 
starts to work his frierrtls. 

As the Tlnies Change. 

W. L. George in the January Atlantic: In 
the 'SOs the customary proposal was "Will 
you be mine?" Very faintly signs are show- 
ing that men will yet say "May I be yours?" 
It will take time, for the possessive, the dom- 
inating instinct in man Is still strong; and 
long may it live, for that is the vigor of the 
race. Only we do not want that instinct to 
carry man away, any more than we want a 
Well bred horse to clench Its teeth upon the 

bit and bolt. 


It's Doae BTrry Dmy. 

Toledo Blade: Sometimes a partisan edi- 
tor will declare positively that the whole 
country is for this or that, and at the same 
time he doesn't know where his next-door 
neighbor stands. 


Bayfield, Wis.. Progress: Up in this 
northland The Progress editor has 
come into contact with daily papers 
that were new to him. Habituated to 
Milwaukee and Chicago dailies, he 
here gets those of Duluth. St. Paul 
and Minneapolis. Of these latter The 
Duluth Herald quickly has taken first 
place in our affections. There's noth- 
ing dead, and evidently nothing dy- 
ing, around The Herald plant. Typo- 
graphically and for volume of live 
news carried in its columns it will 
suffer nothing in comparison with the 
best. .\nd its editorial page -ah, 
there's a gem. It fairly bubbles with 
virility. Its free of any party leash 
and fears the crack of no party whip. 
That page is a live wire of journalism. 
It is filled daily with stuff good even 
for those whose reasoning doesn't 
take them exactly to Herald conclu- 
sions. When snow blocked the mails 
we missed our Duluth Herald rather 
more than any other daily. 

Robert J. Burdette: Ichabod. my boy. me- 
thought I heard you speak of your father 
this morning as "the old man." You are 
18 years of age. are you not? 
Just so. 

That Is the age when callow youth has 
its first attack of bighead. You imagine at 
this moment that you know it all. 

I observed by the cut of your trouser.s, 
the angle of your hat, the tip of your head, 
the flavor of your breath, the style of your 
toothpick shoes and the swagger of your 
walk that you are badly gone on your.self. 
This is an error of youth which your 
uncle can overlook; but it pains him sorely 
to hear you speak in terms of disrespect of 
one you should n.ver mention save by the 
sacred name, "fatlier." 

He may not be up to j-our style in the 
modern art of making a fool of himself, 
but ten to one he forgets more in a week 
than you will ever know. 

He may not enjoy smoking .srutter-snipes 
chopped fine and inclosed in delicate tissue 
paper, but he has borne a good many hard 
knocks for your sake, and is entitled to 
all .the reverence your shallow brain can 

By and by. after you are through knowing 
it all. and begin to learn something, you will 
be ashamed to look in the glass and wonder 
where the fool-killer kept himself when you 
were ripe for the sacrifice. 

And then, when the "old man" grows tired 
of the journey and stops to rest, and you 
fold his hands across his bosom and take a 
last look at a face that has grown beautiful 
in death, you will feel a sting of regret 
that you ever spoke of him in so grossly 
disrespectful a manner; and when other 
sprouts of Imbecility use the language that 
so delighted you in the germinal period of 
manhood, you will feel like chasing them 
with a thick stick and crushing their skulls 
to see If there is any brain tissue on the

To the Editor of The Herald: 

In your issue of Feb. 7 a part of 
Rev. R. E. Miller's s»rmon was pub- 
lished, in which he argues that Christ 
was an advocate of "preparedness." 

•'He asltcd what arms the disciples 
had with th«m, and they produced two 
«wnrds," -says Rev. Miller. "Jesus said 
two sword.>» were enough for their pur- 
po.«ie. Perhaps He ff*ared that if too 
grrat armament among the disciples 
wert; shown, it would lead to violence 
toward them on the part of the sol- 
jllers. Just as reasonable means of self- 
defense would lead to a wholesome re- 

Could anything be more silly cr 
shallow? It has been said that God 
is on the side of the biggest guns. 
This is doubtful, but there i.s no ques- 
tion but that the majority of preachers 
Are on that side; therefore, more pre- 
jiaii dn'-.-:.«<. Did not Christ know that 
.11 ariiud multitude wa.n coming to at- 
tack Him? Why, then, did He say that 
two .-swords were enough? 

Whin Christ ordered the disciples to 
purchase swords, He added: "For I say 
unto you that this that is written must 
Vft be accomplished in me" — here quot- 
ing the prophecy. When Peter or the 
by.<;tander cut off the ear of the priest's 
servant, Christ said: "Put up again 
thy sword into his place: for all they 
that take the sword shall perish with 
th' sword." 

To Pilate. Chri«t said: "My king- 
dom i.9 not of this world. If my king- 
dom were of this world, then would 
my servants fight, that 1 should not be 
delivered to the Jews." 

It is plainly seen here that Chrl.^t

Many clergymen claim that the pres- 
ent world war will ultimately be a

awakening" and increase in church 
membership which it will bring about. 
If this proves true. It will be of a 
temporary nature only, for fear and 
anxiety will not make people perma- 
nentlv pious. Mars, not Christ, Is the 
god of a large number of the clergy.

about any thin i: of that sort, saw the 
mistake and helped to prevent its re- 
currence. One would think that they 
carried so mai y people to these carni- 
vals that the profit accruing to them 
would blind th'-m to the later harmful- 
ness to general business. But they 
were quick to observe that though the 
travel during the actual carnival was 
heavy, for a 1 jng time after and dur- 
ing the sumner, even, there was de- 
cided falling < ff. Inquiries were made 
all over the country, and the reason 
was soon plamly defined; and that 
Minnesota hat: received the blackest 
kind of an ey« and was known mainly 
as a region of perpetual ice and cold, a 
good place to ?tay away from. 

Why, our 1< e palaces knocked the 
bottom clear out of our real estate- 
transactions, I nd for the longest kind 
of time, in Ht. Paul and Minneapolis 
and Duluth, md even way down in 
Southern Minnesota. Not any mere co- 
Incidences or supposition, but losses di- 
rectly traceable to a known cause. 

By all means buck the ice carnival. 
Raise your voice In prayerful opp<'si- 
tlon to anything of the kind, and offer 
instead any bi ggestion that occur.s to 
you for corn palaces, summer carni- 
vals, regattas, anything to carry the 
idea that Minnesota is not in the polar 
regions. , , -

We were alc«ne In the moonlight, 

There in the shadow below; 
Last night, seems to me In my dream- 

Was thousands of years ago. 
Sweet was the story 1 told you. 

Sweet, but the end was a sigh; 
You told me you loved another. 

Last night when you said good-by. 
Last night the stars were all aglow. 
Last night 1 loved, I loved you sol 
My heart was glad, fi»r you were near, 
I held your hand and called you dear. 
My dear, and then — the stars grew 

dim and cold. 
The moon grew pale, my heart grew 

My dream is o'er, to live no more. 

Last night was the end of the world. 

Why did I call you my dear one? 

There was a light in your eye. 
Last night, dear, I thought it wa« 

For me, till I saw it die. 
Why did you teach me to love you? 

Why, when you knew we must part? 
A smile, and you left me forever 

Last night, when you broke my heart.

and listen to my rhyme. 
'Tis a story of a damsel who was 

scarcely In her prime. 
She beats the blushing roses, admired 

by all around; 
They called her "Pretty Carolina of 

Edinboro town." 

Young Henry, being a Highland lad, 

a-courtlng her he came. 
And when her parents heard of this, 

they did not like the same. 
Young Henty being offended, he unto 

her did say: 
"Arise, my lov»-ly Caroline, and with 

me run away. 


"We'll go down to London, 

we'll wed with speed, 
And there, my dearest Caroline 

have hapiness, indeed." 
Persuaded by her

much sorrow. 
There was the scene of the gambler's

No thought had they of the awakening

The bright gold was stacked by the

There is one sure way that never 
fails to remove dandruff completely 
and that is to dissolve It. This de- 
stroys It entirely. To do this, just 
get about four ounces of plain, ordi- 
nary liquid arvon; apply It at night 
when retiring; use enough to moisten 
the scalp and rub it in gently with the 
finger tips. 

By morning, most If not all, of your 
dandruff will be gone, and three or 
four more applications will completely 
dissolve and entirely destroy every 
single sign and trace of it. no matter 
how much dandruff yoij may have. 

You will find, too, tfl^t all itching 
and digging of the scalp will stop in- 
stantly, ana your hair will be fluff>-, 
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and 
look and feel a hundred times better. 

You can get liquid arxon at any 
drug store. It Is inexpensive, and 
four ounces is all you will need. This

Now pri sped by grief without relief,

given Rocco Caputo, who was injured

of the city. . 

"There Is no reason why the cit> s 
physicians are not able to handle these 
Injurv cases," said Commissioner Far- 
rell ""We will not only save the medi- 
cal bills, but be in a position to know 
the exact injuries sustained by the vic-

County Auditor Explains 

Rules of Primaries and 

Town Elections. 

Annual elections in organized towns 
throughout the state and the presi- 
dential primaries wiU fall on the same 
day. March 14, next. In order to avoid

ficials. County Auditor Odin Halden

held in your town on the second 
Tuesday of March, at the place des- 
ignated for holding town meetings. 
This date being the same date on 
whicli t!ie presidential primary elec- 
tion is to be held, will necessitate the 
town boards providing separate ballot 
brxes for the ballot cast for the presi- 
dential primary. The same officers,

visors and the town clerk, shall act 
as judges and cle>k of election.

tion shall continue open until 9 p. m., 
and the above mentioned officers shall 
see that the returns are properly made 
out and signed, poll lists and tally 
sheets signed, ballots sealed up. etc., 
before adjourning."

Incinerator Plant and Gar- 
bage Collections Back 
Under Safety Head. 

Management of the city incinerator 
plant has again been transferred. 

The city commissioners have shifted 
the i-esponslbillties of the department 
from Commissioner Farrell, works 
head, who assumed charge of the plant 
and the collection of garbage on Jan. 
1, back to Commissioner Silberstcln. 
head of the safety division. This work 
was always handled by the health de- 
partment, but early last fall members 
of the council decided on the transfer, 
believing that collection of garbage 
and the operation of the plant could 
be handled much better in the works 
department. _ 

Earlv yesterday afternoon Commis- 
sioner Farrell learned that the charter 

prevents him from spending money 
for the operation of the city plant out 
of a works fund. As a result of this 
technicality, he told the commission- 
ers that he would refuse to operate 
the plant, unless he can have absolut* 
control, and a resolution authorizing 
the transfer back to the safety depart- 
ment was adopted. 

According to the interpretation of 
the charter made by City Attorney 
Samuelson at the council meeting yes- 
terday, only the .safety head has the 
power to authorize expenditures for 
the garbage department, thus taking 
the conxplete control out of the hands 
of the works head. 

"This means, if I was to keep tho 
management of the plant, that my 
division would have the work and the 
public safety division would have the 
control," said Commissioner Farrell. 
"I'm willing to assume both the work 
and the control, but I don't want t#e 
work and not the control." 

When the first transfer of the plant 
wa.s made on Jan. 1. the commi-fsion- 
ers gave little thought to the finance 
end of the change, believing that tha 
work could be handled better In tha 
works department.

Court Holds Detention as 
Unconstitutional; No De- 
portable Offense. 

Mike Connor, deserter from the Can- 
adian army, who was arrested recent- 
ly by the United States immigration 
Inspectors after they had discovered 
that he had come into the country 
without inspection, was released from 
custody by District Judge Fesler yes- 
terday afternoon after a hearing on a 
habeas corpus writ which had been 
procured in his behalf. 

The court held that merely escaping 
inspection was insufficient to warrant 
the detention of Connor by the immi- 
gration authorities, unless the warrant 
of arrest alleged that he had commit- 
ted a deportaUe offonse. The warrant 
merely charged that Connor was 
wrongfully within the United States. 
Judge Fesler held that Connor's de- 
tention under auoh a warrant was un- 
constitutional and ordered his release.

The tendency to indulge one's ap-

Today in Duluth one dollar will buy five 
times as much electric light as it would ten 
years ago. We desire to call attention to the 
fact that since electric lighting has become so 
cheap consumers can use it freely, and can 
break it up, reflect it, or soften it in various 
ways so that there shall be no dazzling or 
glare. Fortunately, no one may feel nowadays 
that he must scrimp in the use of electric light. 
Therefore, it can be used in such a manner — 
by indirect illumination in some cases, by the 
employment of shades and reflectors, or by 
various combinations of lamps and fixtures — 
that there shall be no bright light in the direct 
line of vision. 

This conservation of human eyesight is to 
be sought constantly, not only in the home, but 
in factory, store, offfice or workshop. 

Avoid glare. Save your eyes. We do not 
countenance wastefulness in the use of elec- 
tricity. But we do counsel the careful plan- 
ning of illumination systems. 

We have men who specialize in illumina- 
tion. They are at your service.

I Boys Come Tumbling Down. 

HI-. RlIAl'S you have noticed, sirrah, 
that some of he baseball stars of 
'yes-terday are coming down to the 
large minor leagies of the country. 
The collapse of the Federal league 
with its i68 under contract and re- 
serve is the cause. Cause and effect 
started the Civil war and the Stand- 
ard Oil company, Cause and effect 
are at the prtse it moment sending 
ball players down to the minors, who. 
but yesterday, wt re in eager demand 
in the big leagues and Federal camps. 
Also, while we are on the subject, let 
us state that the'e is a drooping in 
the salaries of some of the bejys. 

^Vhat is the starchy status of the 
small minor leajfue? That's what 
many of the mei who have been in 
the habit of putting their money be- 
hind small basebiill ventures, are ask- 
ing these dreary days of upheaval. 
Has the bush league ceased to exist 
as a money makt r. or have the past 
few years mercl'* been drab reflec- 
tions of the times? 

Ticket service and the immense 
amount of publicity the boiler plate 
and patent inside.' have given the big 
leagues have without a doubt served 
to focus attention on the larger 
leagues at the expense of the smaller 
baseball circuits of the company. 

Take Duluth a- a shining example 
(>i the correctnes* of this statement. 
Go back a decade or more and you 
would find most of the fans out at 
the hall park. Dr you know now that 
there are "fans" in this town who 
scarcely ever m?ander out to the 
park. They are "fans" in the sense 
that they follow he baseball dope of 
the big league teams, know the bat- 
ting average of nearly every big 
league star, and yet scarcely ever 
give heed to the olayers on the home 

This condition must prevail in many 
c-f the third an»l fourth class cities of 
the country. The major leagues have 
hogged the limelight. The bush 
leagues take what they can get and 
are humbly thank ul for what is given. 
The big leagues demand much and 
seem but little sa isfied with that. 

True is it that the game can thrive 
and prosper only with the aid and as- 
sistance of the smaller leagues; and 
yet some day one vaguely wonders 
if business men and men that are not 
business men in he strict interpreta- 
tion of the word, are not going to 
grow exceeditigl}' weary of digging 
down for new ard untried dollars to 
keep the minor h'ague baseball prop- 
osition before th ? public eye.

Would Pro\ e Popular Win. 

H.\Y, Bill, wovldn't it be great if 
Frank Moraii would knock the 
bermnda off'ii the frame of that 

big stew that Tom Jones is takin' 
around with the circus. You asks me 
why. Bill, I want to see this big 
clown beatted and I can't say just 
why. but I do just the same. Maybe 
it makes me soar that he gits so much 
money in so easy a way while I gotta 
to stick around the boiler factory un- 
til the whistle blows at sick o'clock 
or look fcr another job. 

You asks me why is I soar at Jess 
Willard. well I dunno. exactly. But 
this Mtiran looks more like a regular 
guy that thet big stiff and I would 
be tickled to death to read that he 
had knocked the can off'n Willard. 
It used to be when I wus a kid that

Little Louie Zorbas is to have a| 
chance at the lightweight wrestling, 
title. The stocky little elreek who has, 
been wrestling in preliminaries and 
semi-windups around these parts for 
years, is to journey to Lincoln, Neb., 
and ni«et Owen Dailey, claimant of- the 
lightweight crown, in ihe Nebraska 

Louie has a host of friends in this 
town. There are many who believe 
the Creek is one «.f the greatest grap- 
plers of his weight and size In the 
city. Louie has worked with every 
•tar who has ever ( onie here for 
matehe.s. His training started back in 
the days when Sailor .Ta< k was creat- 
ing some furore by his tremendous j 
strength and remarkable pc-wers of en- 
durance. Ed Adam.son took a few I 
whirls on the mat with the kid, then I 
Walter Miller. Mike Yokel and Waino; 
Ketonen have in turn given the little; 
Oreek some valuable pointers about! 
the game. j 

In Daily the Duluth boy will meet a 
little man who is the rage of the Ne- 
braska country. Down in the tall I 
grass land they believe Dailey invin- | 
<ible. The result of the meeting will 
be awaited with con.slderable interest 
by followers of the game here. It 
would prove a decid' d boost to the 
local wrestling colony to have the 
Zenith City Greek defeat the Ne- 

Zorbas is training hard at the pres- 
ent time. He worked with Ketonen 
when the Finn was training for the 
• 'arr match and is also doing a lot of 
running over the Duluth hills.

It was said that "Winona bowlers 
sought the 1917 tournament in case the 
Duluth club could not get the neces- 
sary .support for the meet. 


New York, Feb. 16. — In the midst of 
the great European war the idea of 
international sport and competition 
will not down. The advocates of these 
games are constantly advancing plans 
for such meetings, to take place dur- 
ing hostilities or immediately follow- 
ing the declaration of peace. It is re- 
peatedly pointed out that such friend- 
ly engagements in the realms of sport 
will either help in bringing about 
peace or act as a balm for the bitter- 
ness engendered by the conflict. 

An example of these frequent efforts 

is shown in plans for en international 
sport meeting after the war, to be 
held in Holland, the land of the Inter- 
national meetings. This interesting 
idea i.s put forward in one of the lead- 
ing Dutch newspapers by a sport en- 
thusiast. The writer argues that when 
peace comes, economic necessity will 
8o<>n draw the present belligerents to- 
gether again and prepare the way for 
inlei national sport, which will, in its 
turn, react favorably on the relations 
of those now engaged In so bitter a 
struggle with gun and bayonet. 

Such international sport meetings, 
however, he points out, call for diplo- 
matic and careful preparation. One 
cannot, for instance, expect to see a 
football match, Germany vs. Britain, In 
Berlin, in the first post-war season. 
Hence Holland's opportunity to per- 
form a d^-licate task, with the support 
of America and other neutrals, by mak- 
ing the country a center of contact. 
The aim of such an international meet- 
ing would naturally have to be deli- 
cately masked, but once representa- 
tives of the present belligerents had 
met on a Dutch playing field the pro- 
cess would develop of itself very 
quickly, leading to a full restoration 
of the valuable International sport. 

To any pessimist inclined to ask 
whether the warring nations will have 
any men to spare for sport after the 
present slaughter, the writer points 
out that football is still being played 
week by week In Britain, that a Bel- 
gian eleven quite recently played a 
leading Hague team, that a football 
match took place three weeks ago at 
Vienna between Austria and Hungary, 
and that football Is being regularly 
plaved Just behind the fighting front. 
Furthermore he states that there are 
at present cycle races, cross-cotmtry 
and athletic contests being held in 
war-iidden Belgium; cycling and run- 
ning races in Berlin, and that German 
soldiers obtain leave from the front to 
go and participate in the latter con-

Reports from those close to auto 
racing authorities are to the effect 
that the Vanderbilt Cup and Grand 
Priae trophy races will not be allotted 
for speedway competition during 1916. 
It is said that the members of the 
Motor Cups Holding corporation are 
strongly opposed to shifting these au- 
tomobile race classics from roads to 
tra< k courses. Unless there is a 
change In the deeds of gifts it appears 
as though these two best known of 

Amejican auto-racing trophies will go 
uncompeted for during the present

Alma Richards, winner o^ the high 
jump at the Olypmlc games in Stock- 
holm four years ago ai\d American De- 
cathlon champion, has taken up pole 
vaulting. Richards, who has won 
many points for Cornell in the high 
and broad Jumps, as well as the shot- 
put, believes that he can clear better 
than twelve feet in the vault. Trainer 
Jack Moakley is not particularly keen 
for the Cornell star to compete in this 
event for fear that he will injure him- 
self and deprive the Ithaca university 
of several points in the intercollegiate 
championship next May. Moakley has 
had a specially heavy and strong 
vaulting pole made for Richards and 
has limited his vaults to date to 11 
feet 6 inches. Richards has had little 
difficultv in clearing the bar at this 
height and is ready to try the 12-foot

! all amateur.s who competed In the pre-

I were promoted by Packey McFarland

Talk of veteran oarsmen of the Du- 
luth Boat club giving up the rowiitir 
ghost will probably quickly sub.<-id« 
should the efforts of Duluth to Sand 
the regatta of the National Association 
of Amateur Oarsmen be crowned with 
success. Those who have declared they 
are through will most likely r< w at 
least one more year, should the na- 
tional regatta be held on the St. L( ^19 
bay course. 

The two Moores, Dug and Phi.. Max 

Rheinberger and Dave Horak iij^ve 

talked some of quitting the game. It 

is hardly likely that this famous <iuar- 
tet would desert the game when iheir 
services wotild be needed so great'o' tQ 
make the first national held out in this 
country In years a decided success. 

Ten Eyck will have need of al; hl# 
veteran material to swing together a 
great eight. If the Moi>rep. Hhein- 
berger and Horak remain In the run- 
ning there will be no worries or u<ubl8 
or qualms regarding the senior four. 
But there will be a lot of veieiarg 
needed for the eight. 

It Is believed that the landing « f a 
national regatta for Duluth would 
serve as a decided stimulus in the se- 
curing of candidates for the va! 1< uf 
crews. Some bantam will b^ 
needed, as the Duluth banties gr.iuu- 
ated last year, and some junior n.i.t*- 
rlal could be used, although Dul nh'« 
1916 juniors are still juniors thr* .igli

scheduled to be ii<»ld In the gymMa^lurn 
yesterday afternoon, when the prelim-

of the veteran coach, there are m i.-io

March 16, 17 and If. It is platftied

largest and best tournament ever held 
in Menomonie. 

Reports from the twenty-one coun- 
ties to be represented at this tourna- 
ment are to the effect that the teams 
In this district are of unusually high 
caliber, and this, of course, means a 
high class tournament. As yet no 
teams are sure of representing their 
district, due to the close competilion 
and evenly n»atched teams. 

The tournament is to be held under 
the auspices of the Stout Athletic as- 

Corftrary to the tournaments held by

this game at the head of the lakes. 
The Superior boys are game and it is 
going to be a matter of do or die with 
them wh-n they hook up with the 
Catholic boys. 

Coach Daugherty thinks that the 
boys have struck their jtride in de-

and is .<?tarling in to rem<-dy their few 
' faults in preparation of the Superior 
game. ^ ,

Willard III With Bad Cold 

and Unable to 


Chicago. Feb. 16. — Jess Willard's 
flght with Frank Moran, March 8, may 
have to be postponed because of 
trouble which the big fellow la having 
with a cold which has settled in his 
throat. He lost several days of train- 
ing a week ago because of the cold. 
Then he went at It again, but lacked 
vigor, and yesterday he remained at 
home. , ... 

The report that the fight might be 
postponed Is said to have originated in 
a long-distance telephone conversation 
between one of thti.j>romoter8 in New 
York and his repfetsfentatlve here. The 
latter will see \V'U]*i;d today, it was

manager for Willard. declared h^re 
last night that the heavyweght cham- 
pion was so ill th«'t he might not be 
able to come to Ne^- York until late 
in the week. He said that in talking 
to Willard over the telephone WU- 
lard'.-^ voice was very weak and he 
could scarcely hear 4ilhi. Jonea added 
that under no circumstances would he

Rochester. Minn.. Feb. 15.— Fred Ful- 
ton, Rocheater'a aspirant for the 
heavyweight championship title, has 
returned to his home city from New 
Orleans, whither he journeyed a few 
weeks ago anticipating a battle with 
Jess Willard. Fulton states that his 
two months' stay In the South did not 
agree with him. and that he has been 
"under the weather" for a number of 
weeks with a touch of malaria. 

He expects to forget the fight game 
for a month or ao to get back ihto 
condition, and atlU is hopeful that he 
soon will land a chance to contend for 
the h«avvweight crown. 

Speaking of his encounter with Por- 
ky Flynn, Fulton claims that he got 
the referee's decision, but wanted a 
knockout. A cracked thumb in the 
fourth round and his weakened con- 
dition caused by the weather, prevent- 
ed hlni from getting a knockout, he 
says. , ,

Milwaukee. Wis.. Feb. 15.— More than 
200 FrohibitioniatB of Milwaukee coun- 
ty met here last night at their sixth 
annual dinner. Great enthusiasm was 
manifested over "the splendid advance 
of the dry cause," which was charac- 
erized as not a "wave." but a flood tide. | 
The principal speakers of the eve- j 
ning were Rev. E. L.. Eaton of Madi- 
son and E. E. Lobeck of Alexandria. 
Minn., a member of the Minnesota state 
senat-. Miss Rosa M. Perdue of the 
Big Sistera' lH>me told of the pitfalls 
which beset the path of the working 
girl in Milwaukee. Mrs. W^ A. La?^" 
aon. state president of the W. C. T. L.. 
told of "the great awekening among 
the women" as evidenced by the gam 
In membership In that organization 
during the jwiat year. William C. Dean, 
field superintendent, told of the work 
which has been done In the county and 
the plans for the future. State Chair- 
man A. J. Benjamin spoke of the out- 
look for state and nation. 

Prohibition of the liquor traffic will 
add more than $20,000,000 a year to the 
volume of legitimate business in Mil- 
waukee, Mr. Dean asserted. This 
amount, he figured, is being spent for 
drink. He estimated that lu the city 
J 000 saloons do an average business 
of $26 a day or $9,000 a year, making 
$18 000 000. He added to this the sales 
made by the breweries direct to con- 
sumers, the receipts of liquor aold in 
bottles by grocers, department stores 
and druggists, and the takings of 100 
or more aaloonsi just outside the city 
limits. He said the total of more than 
$20 000 000 would be diverted by pro- 
hibition into the channels of legitimate 
business. . . _ 

"The brewers themselves recogriize 
this and are engaging in other Indus- 
trie*" he added. "Only the other day 
the formation of a new candy manu- 
facturing company was announced with 
Val Blatz. Jr.. as its president. 

"A powerful present day factor in 
the tendency toward prohibition is the 
efflciencv movement in the factories 
and the" workmen's compensation act. 
Factory managers are .^fl»'n'"»J'"K 
drink as rapidly as possible VV'thln 
a vear the management of the AUis- 
Chalmers company, which has brewers 
uDon Its board of directors, adopted a 
rigid rule forbidding any liquors being 
brought to or consumed on its prem- 
ises By Its employes. Others are adopt - 
ng the same rule. Many factory mana- 
eers are patting up posters warning 
their employes against the use of 
liquor at any time. Manufacturers of 
the Fox River valley have employed a 
noted advocate -of prohibition to con- 
duct "efficiency insftutes," aa a jneans 
of -du'^atirig the people as to the ef- 
fects of drink on efficiency and safety.

ence of the Northern church at Sara-

i South, 'the Canadian Methodist church, 
the Methodist Protestant church, the 
African Methodist Episcopal churoh

ble, because we eat too much and all 
our food is rich. Our blood is filled 
Willi uric acid which the kidneys strive 
To filter out, thoy weaken from over- 
work, become sluggish; the eliminativ« 
tissues clog and the result Is kidney 
trouble, bladder weakness and a gen- 
eral decline in health. 

When your kidneys feel like lumps 
of lead; your back hurts or the urine 
1h cloudy, full of sediment or you are 
cjMiged to seek relief two or three 
tiriKs during the night; if you suf- 
fer with sicl; headache or dizzj-, ner^'-

rheumatLsin when the weather is bad, 
gel from your pharmacist about four 
ounces of Jud Salts; take a table- 
iipoonful in a glass of water before 
bic-akfast for a few days and your 
kidneys will then act fine. This fa- 
mous salts is made from the acid of 
grapes and lemon juice, combined 
with Mthia, and has been used for gi n- 
erations to fla^h and stimulate clogged 
kidneys; to neutralize the acids in the 
urine so It no longer is a source of ir- 
ritation, thus ending bladder disorders.

the nature of a test of the new 
amendment to the inheritance tax laws 
which compel kh alien heir to pay 26 
per cent of th i Inheritance in a tax 
while a native or resident heir only 
pays 5 per ceni. 

This case is in the matter of the 

estate of Mart n A. Hagen, deceased, 

land was appe iled from the county 

j court, where Jtdge A. G. Hanson up- 

I held the provit.ion of the inheritance

I tion is not oily a violation of the 

I Federal Constitution, but is also a 

violation of th< treaty rights between 

this government and Norway.

Detained at Edgewood, 

B. C, Wants to Return 

to Grand Marais. 

Grand Marnis, Minn., Feb. 16.— Val 
Molcic, or "Little Val," as he was gen- 
erally called by his tJrand Marais ac- 
quaintances when he lived here, writes 
fri)m Edgewood, B. r"., that he Is a 
prisoner of war in an internment camp 
at that place, with 200 other Austrlans 
and tiCrnians. 

This information came In a letter 
written Jan. 23, by Molcic to Fred 
.laekson. and a stamp indorsement on 
ih<- envelope shows that it was passed 
by the Internment censor on Jan. 24. 

Val is not enjoying life as a prisoner 
of war. "To tell the truth," he says, 
"life in here is not very good, and I 
would like to get out;" and he seems 
fo think that those who know him here 
might be able to do something to help 
him out of his present dilemma. From 
the time of his immigration to America 
in 1905 until about 1913. Molcic resided ! 
in Cook county, and there Is not the ; 
slightest blot upon the record of his t 
stay In these parts. He was an Indus- ] 
trious, law-abiding and useful citizen. 

Declartd lliii Inteiitloua. i 

T'nfortunately for him he failed to i 
take out his citizenship papers while ' 
here. The records of the clerk of court 
of this county show that he formally 
declared his intention to renounce al- 
legiance to the Austrian government 
and to become an American citizen; and 
he applied to be admitted to full citi- 
zenship, but left this county before the 
date fixed for final hearing on same.

Chestnut. T'oplar and such names be-

Is also expected an ordinance will be '

Virginia, Mina., Feb. 16. — Cesare 
Mondavu received a letter from his 
brother, Henry Mondavo Monday say- 
ing that he had been called to the serv- 
ice of Italy. Th9 class reserves to 
which* he belong* had received no call 
prior to this time and this fact shows 
that Italy as well as the other warring 
nations is drawi ag heavily on the re- 
serves. The lett -*r states that nearly 
every family has sent some member 
to the front. 

Henry Monda\ o was a resident of 
the range for nearly five years. Near- 
ly two years ago he returned tx> the 
old country and he was married one 
year ago last November. Ho Is 27 years 
old. He was engaged In mining while 
en the range, being located at Virginia 
for a time and also at Ely. He had 
been refused admission to the army 
several years ag') and it was only dur- 
ing the present trouble that he had an 

opportunity for service.

Ashland, Wis., Feb. 15. — Fire de- 
stroyed a small hunting shack near 
the Drummond depot Friday evening 
and resulted in the death of an un- 
known man. It Is presumed that th% 

man had sought shelter for the night 
and in some unaccountable manner the 
shack caught fire without the knowl- 
edge of its occupant and the shack 
was entirely destroyed by fire. 

A search among the ruins by the 
curious disclosed the charred hum-tn 
body, all that remained being the 
trunk, the remainder of the body hav- 
ing been cremated so that identifica- 
tion was impossible altliough the body 
Is supposed to be that of a man who 
sought work at one of the camps Fri- 
day morning.

Ashland, Wis., Feb. 16. — Among Ash- 
land county people who have been 
summoned to Superior to serve as 
grand jurors at the Federal term of 
court now being presided bver by 
Judge K. M. L/andis were Joe Ken- 
nedy of Sanborn; Burt Gammon of 
Marengo; C .F. Frederich and CharloS 
Zoosch of Butternut; Frank Derringer 
of Glidden; M. T. Cole of Cayuga; Oscar 
Auley of Mellen; Alex Kluck and 
Ernest Scott of Ashland. 

Despite the fact that the new hotel 
ordinance is so worded that every 
rooming house In the city can be 
classed as a hotel and Its owner or 
operator compelled to pay $6 for a 
special license, the measure was givey 
Its first reading yesterday afternoon 
without any opposition. It was intro- 
duced by Commissioner Silberstein, 
head of the safety division. 

According to provisions of the ordi- 
nance, if a person hangs out a "for 
rent" sign th(n that house can be 
classed as a hotel and its occupants 
charged a regular hotel license fee. 
Section 2 of the ordinance, classifying 
the word "hotel," follows: 

"For the purposes of this ordinance, 
every building or structure kept, used, 
maintained, advertised or held out to 
the public to be a place where sleeping 
or rooming accommodations are fur- 
nished to the genera] public, with or 
without rneals, shall be deemed a hotel. 
The person or persons In charge of 
any such hotel, whether as owner, les- 
see, manager or agent, shall, for the 
purpose of this ordinance, be deemed 
to be the proprietor of such hotel." 

No official opinion has been obtained 
from Cit.v Attorney Sarnuelson. but an 
interpretation may be requested be- 
fore the ordinance comes up for pas- 
sage after two more readings. 

Every person desiring to rent rooms, 
with or without board, must make ap- 
plication to the city clerk, and after a 
favorable report is received by the 
council from the chief of police, then 
the license can be granted, according 
to the ordinance. Hotels and rooming 
houses must be inspected twice each 
year by the police department, whllo 
health refeulatlons must be carefully 
observed to avoid revocation of the li- 

Section 10. relating to the keeping of 
a hotel reprist»r and the assignment of 
rooms, follows: 

"Every person operating a hotel in 
the city of Duluth shall at all times 
keep a suitable book, to be known as 
the 'Hotel Register,' in which It shall 
be required that every person to whom 
a room Is let or assigned shall have 
his, her or their names registered 
therein in Ink, and shall set forth a 
proper statement of the date and the 
hour of the day at which the room 
was let or assigned. And it shall be 
unlawful for any person operating a 
hotel under the provisions of this or- 
dinance, to let Or assign any room for 
sleeping accommodations or otherwise 
oftoner than once in any period of ten 
hours following the time of Its original

Every Particle of Dandruff 

Disappears and Hair Stops 

Coming Out. 

Draw a Moist Clotti Through 

Hair and Double Its 

Beauty at Once. 

Your hair becomes light, wavjr, 
fluffy, abundant and appears as soft, 
lustrous and beautiful as a young: 
girl's after a "Danderine hair cleanse." 
Just try this — moisten a clcth with a 
little Danderine and carefully draw it 
through your hair, taking one small 
strand at a time. This will cleanse tha 
hair of dust, dirt and excessive oil and 
in just a few moments you have dou- 
bled the beauty of your hair. 

Besides beautifying the hair at once, 
Danderine dissolves every particle of 
dandruff; cleanses, purifies and invig- 
orates the scalp, forever stopping itch- 
inc and falling hair. 

But what will please you most will 
be after a few weeks' use when you 
will actually see new hair- — fine and 
downy at first — yes — but really new 
hair growing all over the scalp. If 
you care for pretty, soft hair and lots 
of it surely get a 25 cent bottle of 
Knowlton's Danderine from any drug- 
gist or toilet counter, and just try it. 

Save your hair. Beautify it I You 
will say this was the best 25 cents you 
ever spent. — Advertisement.

But $3,000,000 Would Be 

Necessary for the 


want a 
to the 

Dululh auromobile owner* 
concrete highway from here 
Twin Cities. 

Tht« improvement has been suggest- 
ed several times In the paat. but was 
given impetus as the result of the 
automobile sh'^w last week and there 
is now a movement on foot to start a 
statewide campaign for a concrete 
from Duluth to Minneapolis 
Paul. That such a road 
all the Lincoln highway 
Duluth, is th<' belief of

and SC 
would bring 
tourists to 

A report aent 
emanating from 
the possibility 
throughoqt the 

those behind the movement, who say 
that cross country travel is more popu- 
lar than ever at present and will con- 
tinue to increa<^, as a rt-sull of the 
European war. which is keeping Araer- 
i^an.s at home. 

Most of the cross country tourists, it 
is pointed out, visit Minneapolis and 
St. Paul, either for a short stay, as these 
cities conne<-t with the Lincoln high- 
way running through Iowa, or to con- 
tinuf^ along the Yellowstone trail run- 
ning through N'orth Dakota. Montana 
and Washington. If a concret-^ road 
wpuld be built to Duluth, the motorists 
w >uli all make the run up here, be- 
rau~>e of the splendid highway afforded 
them and wlso because of the cool, 
weather at the Head of the Lakes dur- 
ing the summer monfis. 

It is estimated that a concrete road^ 
with a width of about i-ighteen fi^et, 
would cost approximately $20,000 per 
mile. As the motor road now in use 
is about 160 miles long, the concrete 
highway would cost $3,200,000. Co- 
operation of tht" -itate. with county, 
riiy and village officials, is urged by 
local automobile owners and a general 
movement, it is claimed, would make 
the concrete road a possibility withlit 
the next five years. 

The concrete pave nent would be 
laid along what is known as the Du- 
lulh-Twin City road, running through 
West Duluth. Carlton. Rarnum. Moose 
Lake. Sturgeon Lake. Willow River, 
Sandstone. Hinckley, Pine City, Hush 
City. North Branch. Stacy. Wyoming 
Station. F'ore.-<t Lake. Hugo. Minne-

railroad sources, that 

of, a coal famine 

Morthwest appears to 

be eliminated, is not recelyed with 
sangulninlty by superintendents of coal 
dofks here. In vlfW of the fact that 
al! of the coal swpply for the North- 
west Is shipped rrom this, pohit, the 
opinion of the coal dock superinten- 
dents is regarded 'as well /worth con- 

sid*^ ring. , ' ^. ^ 

The Minneapolis Disjiatph says that 
the railroads hav<« , the? situation well 
in hand and that "hundreds of cars of 
coal are moving from Duluth-Supcrlor 
Inland to snmll country stations." 

One coal dock' superintendent here, 
who asked that his name be not used. 
for obvious reasons, declared that while 
hundreds of cars "of^ coal are moving 
from this point at present, fully half 
of them are carry'ing coal for the rail- 
roads themselv.^8, the supply of the 
roads having be«»n cut down by 
recent ."inoW blockade.^, and that 
ply badly needing repl.nlshment. 
Hot Mitrti CoBWierelaJ Coal. 
"The amount ai coal that Is being 
shipped for commercial purposes Is. 
therefore, by no means as large as It 
should b« , • he declared. 

"Further than that." he continued, 
"the car situation Is really worse than 
It was a week afto. All railroad lines 
are short of coal, and they ar<> sending 
in the cars that early coal for them- 
.splve.i. but not piuclf of anything for 
the commercial coal. 

"I am informed .U«at at terminal and 
Junction points throughout the North- 
west there are many cars of coal con- 
gested because th!»y; have, as yet. been 
unable to operate op branch lines, and 
it is at such si4.*-l>«« points that the 
suffering will be felt If the lines are 
not opened up .e<)pn. The empty car 
situation has bfetji ^ reduced, but that 
does not help u.^ or who need 
fuel tor industrlai or domestic use.

few years was supposed to be Incur-

prescribed local remedies, and by con- 
stantly failing to cure with local treat-

Kngli.-^li i-peralors* will be compelK-d to 
come into this market on a more ex- 
tended scale in the near future to 
.svu'l'lv their needs. In view of the 
iiifc-h Argentine freight rates and 
scarcitv of .slilppiiig. this country and 
Canada" hold the. first place as the 
nearest and most available sources of 
suti'- It is freely adniitt'd though 
that steady exf)ort buving in this coun- 
tiy is necessary to su.'itain prices in 
view of the large stocks remaining in 
elevators and farmers" hands in all 
parts of tlifc »ountry. An aid iu tre- 
ating bullish sentiment today was the 
intimation that the prospects for the 
free importation of «"anadian wheat 
during this crop year are now practi- 
cally nil. A free wheat resolutif>n was 
introduced in the t'anadian parliament 
last niuht. but discussion of it was de- 
ferred, it being thus placed at the foot 
of tiie order paper, making it improb- 
able that It will be again biought up 
at the -resent session of the house. 

Advices were again received to tliC 
effect that the Hi iiish government 
might take action shortly to regulate 
oce;in freight rates on grain. That Is 
lDterpret»d as bullish marketwise. In 
ttie rneantinje another advance in the 
rate on wheat to Liverpool was an- 
uiutneed again today. 

fasii wheat was strong on the Du- 
luih market, with the basis on No. 1 
Northern raised to 2c over the May 
future and as. high as 6c over being 
r-aid for choice wheat by millers.

Wheat Gains in Strength Notwith- 
standing Early Weakness. 

ChiciHgo, Feb. 15. — Assertions that 
export business done in the last few 
days had been much under-estimated 
brought about a display of strength 
in wheat today notwlthstandiitg weak- 
ness at the start. The initial tendency 
to sag resulted from scattered selling 
and from the fact that temporarily 
the pit d^-mand seemed to be more 
limited than usual. The market rose 
swiftly, however, when buying became 
somewhat free. (Jpening prlce.«. which 
varied from the same as yesterdays 
finish to Ic lowt r. were followed by 
an upturn that showed fair net gains 
all around. 

Word of fresh export transactions 
caused a further advance although 
late dispatches hinted that the new 
sales were not of any large amounts. 
The close was firm. Ti *& 1 to l>ifillic 
net higher with Mav at 1.28 '4 <§ 1.28='8 
and July 'at $1.21 ^j, ^5, 1.22. 

Corn swayed with wheat. Offerings 
were light. After opening 's'ff'^c to 
U^"mC off. the market scored a sub- 
stantial general advance. 

Announcement of some sales to Eu- 
rope had a bullish effect. The close was 
firm at ^h^*4C to I'ic net advance. 

Oats developed firmness owing to 
the bulge in the value of other grain. 
Trade, though, lacked volume. 

Realizing sales by miscellaneous 
holders acted as a weight on provi- 
sions. Western hog receipts were much 
In excess of the supply at the cor- 
responding time last year.

New York. Feb. 16. — Further selling 
of the character that depressed prices 
yesterday was noted at the outset of 
today's dealings. War shares particu- 
larly ('rucible Steel, Baldwin Locomo- 
tive and Mercantile Marines, were 1 to 
2 points lower and Issues affiliated 
with this group were under pressure. 
Coppers were almost the only shares 
to show firmness but these also yield- 
ed later. United States Steel sold a 
fraction under yesterday's minimum 
and rails also were irregular to heavy. 
Trading was broad with signs of pro- 
fessional activity. 

A decline in today's stock market 
was arrested before the end of tThe 
first hour, with substantial recoveries 
in those issues which had shown great- 
est weakness at the opening. Crucible 
regained over 3 points and a few other 
leading shares were at levels well 
above yesterday's final quotations. 
Marine preferred was the active fea- 
ture of the moderate forenoon. United 
States Steel and Anaconda also con- 
tributing more than their proportion- 
ate share. Coppers as a whole were 1 
relatively steady, but lacked the promi- j 
nence of recent days. Rails were again ! 
neglected and specialities were Irreg- ; 
ular. Firmness prevailed at midday. 1 
Bonds were steady. i 

Renewed pressure was manifested ' 
in the afternoon with pronounced 
weakness in Marine preferred, which ', 
then recorded an overnight loss of over 
4 points. Heaviness of local tractions 
was associated with the impending investigation. I 

Marine preferred recovered part of 
its loss in the final dealings and other 
active stocks also improved. Tl^e clos- \ 
ing was irregular.

That the commercial and industrial 
situation la the most satisfactory in 
the history of the city and thai general 
activity in all lines of trade is assured 
in the spring. Is the conseusus of opin- 
ion among Duluth bankers. 

The demand for funds to finance 
operations In the various branches of 
trade and manufacturing pursuits is 
said to be broadening and the sentiment 
is described as optimistic in every 
quarter. Financiers say that under the 
new^ Federal reserve system, funds are 
abundant to cover all requirements fiO 
that borrowers with good proposals to 
present are assured that their appli- 
cations will bo accorded careful con- 
sideration by their bankers. Financial 
experts are also of the opinion that 
there is no evidence of over-extension 
in any quarter. That, in fact, has 
been carefully safeguarded so far, and 
any expansion that has taken place 
during the last few months is regarded 
as perfectly legitimate. 

Paper Taken Care of Satlkfaetorlly. 

"The manner in which bu.siness paper 
is being taken care of is a gratifying 
feature of the situation." said a 
banker today. "A considerable volume 
of obligations that had accumulated 
during the dull period following the 
outbreak of the war has been taken 
up and, generally speaking, business 
men are nu^- meeting ihtlr bills 

Evidence that employment is excep- 
tionally good for the winter ^eascjn, is 
afforded, he averred. In the increases 
being shown in savings bank deposits. 
In past years it has been the rule for 
these deposits to gradually diminish 
during the winter months and in the 
spring they have been always ftt their 
lowest notch. Under the changed 
business and commercial conditons, it 
is predicted that new high records In 
the way of deposits will be set by the 
local national and state banking insti- 
tutions during the present year, 

DepoaltK Doable at t^arj-Dnlath. 

The altered conditions existing in 
the steel plant district were commented 
upon by a director of the Central State 
bank at Gary- Duluth. He declared 
that bank's deposits stre now^ more 
than double what they were at the low 
point recorded winter. At the 
beginning of the month, it was shown 
that the balances to the credit of in- 
dividual savings bank depositors aver- 
aged up at $245. Numbers of new de- 
posit accounts are furthermore being! 
opened up after each pay day. 

Commenting upon the situation, 
James B. Forgan, the Chicago banking' 
expert, said in the course of a recent 

"Indications multiply to warrant the 
belief in a material betterment of 
money rates about March. Country 
banks will want balances and will be 
slow to return money to reserve cen- 
ters. Settlements In- farm mortgages 
are made about that time and crop 
necessities probably will be large. 
Country demand will not be sufficient 
to materially lower reserves, but with 
gradual business expansion keeping 
even with growth of deposits, this ele- 
ment will remove top of surplus and 
leave banks less willing to bid against 
each other for commercial paper. 
I "Business everywhere Is better and 
Improving, and with the rule that de- 
posits drop off and the demand , for 
money Increases In March. I am i?on- 
vlnced that better rates are in sight, 
although normal rates are not pos- 

Duiuth railroad officials aver tlTafl 
traffic conditions are gradually becom- 
ing normal after the disarrangement 
experienced by all the Northwest roa<lf 
after the severe snow storm and cold 
weather extending over a period of 
about five •« ceks. 

Despite the discouraging operating 
situation, traffic Is said to have been 
about 20 per cent heavier than last 
year. Coal shipments from the Head 
of the Lakes to interior points In th» 
Northwest have been ehowlng, perhapsv 
the largest relative gain. Up till a 
few days ago railroads were unablo 
to furnish sufficient cars for dealer*, 
and shortages in fuel supplies werd 
reported at many interior points. The 
milder weather has almost automat- 
ically relieved the situation, and un- 
less another sharp spell intervenea. It 

Ip expected that cancellations of car 
orders will be the rule. 

The movement of forest produtfa 
has just started, owing to operations 
having been hampered by deep snow, 
and reports being received lead rail- 
road men to look for lumber output."* 
this season to fall materially belti'w 
the original estimate of mill ownerji. 
That the loss will fall the heavies* 
upon the smaller operators — men get- 
ting out ti>?s and pulpwood — Is con- 
ceded. Shipments of supplies and out- 
fits to points where it had been pro- 
posed to put in camps have been cut 
down to small proportions since Jan, 
10, and some operators, who had camps 
going early in the season, have beea 
compelled to withdraw entirely. A, 
good tonnage of logs is. however, beln^ 
now received over the Duluth & Iroil 
Range railroad, and the Soo line is 
looking forward to large hauls from 
points on its branches radiating 

Great Xorthem Bacy. 

"We have been handling a 
traffic in everything over our 
right along this winter, despite 
vorable operating conditions, and Ave 
are looking forward to the volume «.f 
general business increasing heavily 
during the next two or three weeks.'' 
eaid a Great Northern railroad official 
today. "Improvement has come about 
in the tonnage of merchandise an<i 
manufactured products being shipped 
over the Northwest. It goes to show^ 
that houses here are gaining ground. 
Grain shipments from here to the East 
would have been bulking up heavily 
had it not been for the embargoes and 
the scarcity of cars. The embargoeaj 
are on just as tightly as ever, witli 
Portland. Me., now In the list of porti 
at which they are effective. The 
Northwest roads are not under the cir- 
cumstance.s allowing any cars to leave 
their rails and the number of Eastern 
cars coming in is not sufficient to met t 
the r« Quirement;3 for carrying coar.^e

X.ondon. Feb. 18, 6:35 p. m. — Hf liter's 
Petrograd correspondent telegraphs 
that Erzeruin has been captured by the 

rc-trograd, Feb. 16. via London. — The 
war office Issued last night the follow- 
ing supplement to the official com- 
munication of the day: 

"In addition to the two Erzerum 
forts already announced as captured 
by o ir forces, seven other forts have 
been taken. There is thus a total of 
nine Erzerum forts now In our hands." 

■ < ■ Hi II 

The Erzerum fortifications extend In 
a straight line for twenty-four miles 
along a ridge intersecting all import- 
ant roads from the Caucasus. It has re- 
cently been slated that the Turks un- 
der German direction have constructed 
new forts to the right and left of the 
old fortltlcations.' 

A dl-spatch to the Glornale d'ltalia 
from Petrograd, dated Feb. 1, said that 
German Field Marshal von Der LJoltz 
was In command of the Turkish troops 
at Erzerum. and that there were 80.000 
men locked up In the city with provi- 
sions far only a fortnight. A dispatch 
to the Central News from Amsterdam 
Ml Feb. 3 said that Turkish reinforce- 
ments sent to the relief of Erzerum 
had been beaten off by the Russians 
and that eighty wounded Turkish offl- 
cer.«« and 5,000 wounded men had ar- 
rived at Treblzond. An Athens dis- 
patch to the Dally Mall of London 
stated that Tiirki.«h First army corps 
had be n .«ent to the relief of Erzerum,

the middle of the present month. 

Eizt rum, the principal city of Tur- 
ki.sli Armenia, is situated on a large 
plain about 6.000 feet above the sea. It 
has belonged to Turkey since the early 
part uf the Sixteenth cf-ntury and has 
figu!«d as a bulwark of Armenia in 
the Ru.ssian wars. Col Shuzsky, the 
rtus.stian military critic, was quoted on 
Jan. 29 as saying that an important 
motive of tlu- present active operations 
by the Russians In the Caucasus is to 
relJir'Vi the pressurt on the British in 
M» sopoiamia. and ultimately to form 
K junction with tlie British forces in 
the region.

"Did John Mc.Vlpine commit suicide?" 
This question has been squarely put 
to a district couil jury and upon the 
i answer hinges tie chance of Mrs. 
Sarah K. Mo.\lpliie. widow, to recover 
Jon a $-M,000 ac ident insurance pol- 
I ley issued by tht London Guaranty & 
I Accident company. 

The jury retired about 10:30 o'clock 
this morning and up to 2:30 this afler- 
i noon no verdict had been reach«:?d. 
i The charge wa* delivered by Judge 
' Dancer, who pr. sided at the trial. 
\fter the jury h id retired ^t was re- 
called and the co jrt told the jurors to 
disregard that j art of the charge 
, wherein it stated that the verdict was 
I of importauce to he friends of the late 
'John McAlplne. In his charge, Judge 
I Dancer stated that the jury's tinding 
was of great imi«ortance to the plain- 
tiff and to the ilefendant. and to Mr. 
' McAlpine's friends. Attorney Howard 
T. Abb«»tt of counsel took exception to 
this part of the charge and the jury 
was immediately recalled and was d«- 
' rected to disrega d that part referring 
' to the effect of tie verdict on Mr. M«- 
, Alpine's friends, is they were not con- 
C'Mned. and was told that the state- 
ment was made through inadvertence. 
Cioxlni; Armiment. 
Mr. Abbott nuHie tlie closing aigu- 
; ment for the defense yesterday after- 
noon, outlining ts the jury his theory 
, of the case. He tieclared that the facts 
pointed to suicldr and he attributed as 
the motive not oitly financial troubles, 
but also doraestii troubles which grt w | 
, out of the marriage of his step-son. 
Dale M.Alpioti. with Alice Spalding. 
I He declared that since the last trial 
he, personally, lad not believed that 
i Mrs. Mc.\lplne w is responsible for her 
husband's d'-'ath He charged her, 
however, with having knowledge of 
i the fact that hi r husband had com- 
I mitted suicide nnd with having at- 
i tempted to conceal It. He further 
' ."Stated that the insurance companies in 
Investigating the facts in the case wire 
obliged to go t( Mr. McAlpine's best 
i friends to get a the truth of his fi- 

nancial condition and that they were 
compelled to dig into private family 
affairs to gel at the facts with refer- 
ence to what happened In the house 
during the few hours before Mr. McAl- 
pine's death. 

Attomera Srored. 

Attorney C. O. Baldwin summed UP 
the case on behalf of the plaintiff and 
In doing so bitterly arraigned the at- 
torneys for the Insurance company for 
having charged Mrs. McAlpine with 
murder in the answer which they had 
filed in the case and then abandoning 
the defense with the statement that I 
they did not believe in this theory of 
the case. 

Mr. Baldwin suggested that Mr. Mc- 
Alplne might have been shot by a' 
burglar, who was either in or out of 
the house. He declared that he might- 
also have gone down in the basement 
to look for burglars and stepped on a 
piece of coal and stumbled, shooting 
himself as he fell In an accidental way.

City Commissioners Indorse 

Plan for Duluth-Twin 

City Road. 

City commissioners are In favor of 
the proposed concrete highway to the 
T win Cities, as outlined in The Herald 
last evening. 

Commissioners Voss, Farrell and Sil- 
berstein all expressed themselves as 
being in favor of the proposition, be- 
lieving that such a road could be built 
by the counties, with the co-operation 
of the state highway commission. As- 
sistance by the St. Louis county board 
in paying for the cost of a two-mile 
stretch on this aide of the city limits, 
extending to the Grand avenue pave- 
ment, the cost to come out of the one- 
half mill appropriation levied for this 
purpose, hns iilso been suggested. 

Spending from $100,000 to $200,000 a 
year on the Duluth-Twln City road in 
maintenance and upbuilding will never 
give Minnesota a real good highway," 
said Commissioner Silberstein. "The 
wisest plan would be to build a con- 
crete hiahway. even though the ex- 
pense is heavy, although the improve- 
ment could be extended over several 
years, thus saving all future costs and 
appropriations for the maintenance of 
the road. 

"I would also favor a concrete road 
to Hibbing and the range towns." 

"The idea is a splendid one," said 
Commissioner Voss, "but, of course, 
the expense must be considered. How- 
ever, once the road is built, there the 
expense ends. It would mean much 
for Duluth and the towns along the 
highway which should be encouraged 
by every resideat in the state." 

Commissioner P'arrell said that this 
summer hi^5 engineers would start on 
a survey in West Duluth for the pur- 
pose of obtaining a better hillside 
grade for the Twin City road In case 
the county should decide to spend its 
'i-mill levy for a concrete pavement 
on this side of the city limits. 

"If we build a concrete road," he 
said, "it should be on the best possible 
grade. The Thomson road is rather 
steep after leaving West Duluth prop- 
er and we propose to find a more suit- 
able grade. The idea of a concrete 
highway is a very good one and I am 
sure will appeal to the people through- 
out the state, especially in the Twin

Commissioner Silberstein, head of 
the safety division, will make anothei- 
and the final move In his efforts to 
enforce the snow ordinance. 

This time he ^lans to amend the 
snow and ice ordinance, so that It will 
Include more of the hillside section 
and the residence districts in the West 
end and that section beyond Sixteenth 
avenue east, the boundary line in the 
present limits of the measure. In ad- 
dition, he proposes to Introduce a res- 
olution at the council meeting next 
Monday, instructing the works divi- 
sion to remove snow and ice from all 
sidewalks not already cleaned and to 
assess the costs against the property 

The present ordinance makes the re- 
moval of snow and Ice compulsory in 
the downtQ^n business district, the 
hillside sectlon/^up to Sixth street, 
parts of the West end and as far east 
as Sixteenth avtnue. 

By Introducing the resolution. Com- 
missioner Silberstein hopes to give the 
works department full power to go 
ahead and remove the snow and ice 
from walks included In the districts 
specified In the ordinance. The oc- 
cupant of abuIlQlng, Its owner or the 
owner of Vacant' lots must clean snow 
and Ice off wftlks, according to the 
ordinance, stn6. Unless this Is done, the 
city has the power to do the work

erty, as Is 'don? for street and side-

Plea tings 


and Properly 


That the state normal schools should 
follow up the work of their graduates 
more closely and thus h»-lp rai:se the 
standard of the work in schools taught 
by normal graduate teachers, was f-m- 
phasizc'd at the recent meeting of the 
Etaio normal boaid in St. Paul, ac- 
coidiUK' to Dr. Eugene W. Bohannon. 
president of the Duluth normal school. 
Kxtension work, however, on a largf 
scale was not recommended, he says. 

Dr. Eohannon said today that he had 
long advocated the following up of 
the normal graduates in their teaching 
work. Much benefit, he .said, might 
be given the public schf»ol.s of the slat" 

i by the normal schools extending a 
helping hand. 

Exten.slon work was one of the chief 
topics discussed at the meeting of the 

j board, and the board received reports 
from noimil school pr<-8idents on thi? 
phase of work .is done In .«ieveral 
.«tates. The educators, however, have 
come to the conclu.sIon that normal 
extension work through the medium of 
study centers Is best adapted to thick- 
ly .settled communities with twns a!l 
about and with ready trt.lley service. 

As to the correspond' nee study work, 
it cannot bo <'ntered upon exten.sively 
the board avers. While ail of the 
.schools have allowed some of the sub- 
joct.s to be studied by correspondence, 
the number of the subjects has been 
kept within a very limited sc<.pe. 

The demani from county superin- 
tendents for advice and help In rural 
work Is especially strong and it was 
suggested that a visiting normal school 
teacher could nolo in this line. It was 
aljso sugj^estod that the normal schools 
send speakers to address farmers' club 

The presidents recommended that the 
board decl.ire it the policy of normal 
schools to broaden their field of ac- 
tivity along the lines suggested as rap- 
idly as possible, and that a sum be 
added to the support fund of each 
school suffiolf-nt to provide for the 
employment of an .additional teacher to 
enable it to enter upon exten.*!ion work 
In rural and grade school visitation 
and also Institute and follow-up work.

Ilorehound or thoroughwort tea for 
the fever — goose oil and turpentine to 
rub on for colds and soreness of lungs 
or throat were the remedies used fifty 
years ago. 

Now newer remedies have taken 
the place of the old — a tablet of as- 
pirin or a capsule of quinine for the 
fever without the old bitter tea — and 
Goosolene to rub on the chest or 
throat, Instead of the old goose oil 
ind turpentine, gives quick relief, for 
the congestion, soreness or pain. 

For the little ones Baby Goos-olene 
Is the best to use when they have a 
Dhest cold — Just rub on Baby Goos- 
olene, cover with a soft warm cloth 
and see how quickly they get relief, 
you can get either Baby Goose-olene 
or Goos-olene at any drug store in 25c

Losing Side Entertains. 

this portion of the state was revoked 
by President Taft. which set this sec- 
tion free from the liquor lid, the pro- 
vision being made for such executive 
revocation in the treaty. Is well un- 
derstood by Dululhians who have been 
interested in the matter. 

Dr. Folweir* statement comes in a 
work that he is writing. "A Critical 
History of Minnesota," and concerning 
I !i he said: 

Territory Covered. 
"The Chippewa treaty of 1854, cov- 
ering that territory north of Lake 
I Superior and east of the Vermilion and 
I the St. Louis rivers, contained a clause 
excluding thu introduction of liquor 
! until, that clause should be revoked by 
} the president. In 1855, six months 
later, a treaty covering much of North- 
vu Minnesota from these rivers west- 
ward to the Red river contained the 
aame clause, except that it was to re- 
; main in effect until revoked by con- 
' gresB. 

"It Is possible that the president at 
I some time or other revoked the clause 
in regard to the northeast angle, but I 
, have found nothing of .such an order 
here and to get information for my 
book I wrote last week to the commis- 
sioner of Indian affairs. I have had no 
answer yet." , , .... 

Yesterday, W. Cj. Calderwood, the 
Prohibitionist leader, set Dr. Folwell 
right, in answer to a query. Mr. Cald- 
erwood said: 

"Duluth Is within the limits of the 
1854 treaty, but the anti-liquor provi- 
sion of that treaty was revocable by 
the president. With three other 
treaties of the sam« character. »t was 
modified by presidential order In 1911. 
A leading Duluthlan. who keeps 
posted on such matter. In response to 
a request made by The Herald, to give 
the details of the matter, has furnistred 
the following communication, dealing 
not only with the local territory, but 
with the false idea concerning the ap- 
plication of th*. treaty to portions of 
Michigan and Wisconsin: 

LaborlRK fnder Mkttake. 
"For some time past, communications 
have appeared in the press, and the 
press throughout the Northwest has 
had articles to the affect that within 
the territory in which Duluth lies »n 
Northeast Minnesota. Northern 'VMscon- 
sln and Northern Michigan, no Intox'- 
cating liquors could be sold or intro- 
duced on account of the provision.^ con- 
tained In the treaty made with the 

Indians in 1854. The P'-^Y^/'m"^ theSe 
the various parties sending \". ^^^^ 
communications, have been laboring 
under a serious mistake. 

"On 30, 1854, the Chtppewas of 
Lake Superior ceded to the United 
States all lands theretofore owned by 
thtm in common with the Chippewas 
of the Mississippi lying east of the 
following boundary lines: Beginning 
at a point where the east branch of 
the Snake river crosses the south 
boundary line of the ^hipjewa coun^ 
try. thence running up the said »>r»^n 
to its source, thence north »•? a straight 

line to the mouth o^*^%f "f^ J*' W- 
nah river thence up the St. Louis riv 
er to the mouth of the East Swan riv- 
er thence up the East Swan river to 
us source, thence In a straight line 
o the moit westerly bend In the Ver- 
mllion river, thence down the \ er- 
mllion river to its mouth 

"The territory so ceded was all or 
that ving east of the above boundary. 
ti^nE ealt from Floodwood to the 
Skulfste Marie river In Michigan. "ThU 
fs confirmed in the treaty Itself frot^ 
tho f«<f that the Indians leseivea 
h^ref^om an the un.,old lands in the 
state of Michigan, in the ftate of ^ Is 
ponsln and a certain portion of Mada 
Une Island, and this treaty contained 

the following provision: 

Llaoor ProvUiloa In Treaty. 

"•ArtuTe 7 No spirituous liquors 
shall be made, sold or "««^d °n any o 
the lands herein set apart for the resi- 
dence of the It^dlans and the sale of 
The same shall be prohibited »" ^l^^^;^ 
ritory hereby ceded until otherwise 
ordered by the president. 

"On Feb 16. 1911. President Taft is,

ry la.'»t night. It 
was their twenty-seventh "offense." 

Six thousand eight hundred persons 
bwarmed past Lieut. Norman Ulysses 
Grant Terry, inspector of passports, 
and crowded out onto the large drill 
floor. ' When the large hall was filled 
to overflewing. the balconies, adjoin- 
ing rooms and the smaller assembly 
hall on the third floor, were pressed 
into service. 

Last year, at Wie old armory, police- 
men though^ tney were breaking a 
record when 3,000 persr>ns two-stepped, 
waltzed or trotted, but last night's re- 
markable showing overshadowed all 
other performances. More than 1,000 
persons enjoyed a chicken dinner, 
served in the smaller assembly room, 
starting at 11 o'clock, and even Ser- 
geant Albert Weber outdid himself 
when it camr to serving his famous 

Nobody wore a uniform last night — 
except one lone militiaman, who came 
upstairs to dance after drill and who 
forgot to remove his fatigue uniform. 
Not a single policeman wore any badge 
of authority, as far as the ordinary 
spectator could discern, for silver 
shields were hidden carefully. 

"That's why it was such a success." 
said Sergeant ".lack" Englert. who 
was chairman of the general dance 
committee and the busiest man on the 
floor last night. "There were no po- 
licemen around to frown at a fellow 
If he wanted to laugh a little louder 
than usual." 

Whatever the reason for the suc- 
cess of the affair, it certainly was a 
success physlcWly, financially and so- 
cially. Phyaically because the atten- 
dance taxed the armory building to 
the utmost; .financially because the 
Police Relief*, ifsociation was bene- 
fited materially; socially because 
everyone h^d a,. good time.

Two of Howe's camera men are in

program they will be widely shown. 

The two camera men are C. R. Bos-

Arthur B. Monette. fugitive from 
Justice for the last six and one-half 
years, who was recently apprehended 
by the police, today pleadtd guilty to 
an indictment charging him with for- 
gery, committed in 1909. and was sen- 
tenced by District Judge Dancer to a 
term of not more than ten years In 
the statf penit»ntlary at Stillwater. 

Six years ago. two indictments were 
Teturn«-d against Monette. One charged 
that on Oct. 9. 1909. he passed a forged 
chei k for $18.45 on Frank E. Blodgett 
and thf othi r accused him of having

The armorj referendum petition now , 
has a suflficlt nt number of signatures. 

This announcement was made unof- 
ficially short y before noon today by 
City Clerk Bi rgen after he and several 
assistants had checked the hlb addi- 
tional names filed yesterday afternoon 
by State Seniitor Jones, one of tht 
leaders in lh< fight against the sale of 
the old armo y to the Shriners. 

"There are very few illegal names 

on this addlt onal petition." said Clerk 
Borgen," and I am positive that the 
m«asure is now valid with more than 
1.322 names, the number required un- 
der the pro\ Islons of the charter. 1 
will make an official report U> the 
council this nfternoon or tomorrow." 

After the city clerk's report is made, 
the petition will go before the city 
commissionert. but it is expected that 
no action wi 1 be taken on the meas- 
ure until Judge Dancer hands down 
his decision in the to establish 
the legality of the first petition filed 
by Senattn- Jcnes on Feb. 4. Should he | 
decide In favor of John Jenswi'ld, Jr., 
who brought the action in behalf of 
the .*^hriners. then the building will 
be transferrtd to the fraternity. On 
the other hand, if the court rules that 
the rcferendi.m petition can hold over 
for ten days for additional .•signatures, 
then the council will take official ac- 
tion on the clerk's report and either 
repeal the or ginal ordinance authoriz- 
ing the sale of the armory or call a 
special electi jn this winter. 

Out of the original referendum pe- 
tition, the c erk has certified to 940 
legal signatures and this morning the 
check showed about 476 names out of 
the 526 added yesterday will be found 
valid. This will bring the total to 
above 1.400, while the charter's re- 
quirements place the number required 
at 1,322, or 10 per cent of the total 
vote cast at the election last April, 
when the total poll was 13,228.

^ — ^OR a number of years, in fact. 
I ]K^ I since I have been interested 
I £ I i" preaching a gospel of pure 
1^^^^ foods for ^-very family, at rea- 
MHIIi sonable prices. I have noticed 
^SB2I that thih season of the year 
there is a sudden awakening 
on the part of club women, home wom- 
en and hom< makers to the fact that 
one does not always receive .good val- 
ues for money expended. A sudden 
hue and cry is heard about insanitary 
i.-iirkets and stores, and storage goods 
are soundly berated In long and earn- 
est essays that .are read before homo 
economics cltibs. This Is a splendid 
thing, anTl far be It from me. to criti- 
cize. Tel it is not likely that markets, 
stores and fof>d«; are any worse now 
than at any other season. Carel'-ss- 
nesfl and dlsbon'-sty are always at 
hand, but the weather is better now, 
the sunshine beckons us forth and 
this month w*» have time to think. 
There are no holidays in February to 
distract us, so, with nothing else of 
great Importance to distract us. we 
<:onsider our food supply. Personally, 
I wish there were four Februarys in 
every year, for the matter of good, 
pure food is the most important In all 
the world. Clea*" thinking and good 
health comes only with proper noifrish- 

One of th" Interesting foods to study 
Is coffee. (If It Is pure and well made 
and used with cream and sugar, it is 
a food as well as a beverage. ) Rio 
coffee Is raised In Brazil and shipped 
from Rio de Janeiro. Most of the 
.Java and Mocha is nothing but South 
American coffee prepared to imitate 
the high-priced and scarce grades. 

"Brolien" coffee is extensively adver- 
tised in city stores at sueh low prices 
that It excites curiosity, and there are 
few families in cities that have not 

tried it at one time or another. It is 
claimed that this broken coffee is that 
which is damaged in appearance; it is 
often sifted from the sweepings of 
the coffee houfces. but more frequently 
It is inferio:- coffee that is especially 
broken fur th? purpose of selling. 

Coffee is adulterated with anything 
that can be made to resemble coffee 
beans. Chicofy, wa.ste grains, nuts, 
shells, bread crusts ' (called cerealsj 
and other things are ground to a pow- 
der, colored to a ^offee brown and 
molded to resemble the berries. Even 
whole roasted coffee may be adulter- 
ated. When roasting glazes, gums and 
extracts may be add«d, and thus weak, 
inferior scrap coffee berries are given 
a good appearance aod color, 

Chickory is not the worst adulterant 
that is used, though we hear most 
about it. Sawdust, roast beans, pea- 
nuts and their shells are more objec- 
tionable. Large grqcers carry chicory 
for part of their trade that buy it in 
place of coffee. The root js kiln dried, 
cut fine. sprinkled with butter, 
browned in coffee roasters and finally 
ground. Abroad it is commonly called 
succory and the demand for it in Brit- 
ain Is well established. 

Our pure food laws demand that 
additions made to coffee be named on 
the carton or container it Is sold in. 
We see "coffee blend,'' "cereal coffee," 
"breakfast blend coffee" and similar 
brands and blends. Cereals and nuts 
are fine in their place, but this is not 
In the coffee. Housekeepers will do 
well to buy a good grade of pure cof- 
fee and economize in its use by making 
it in a percolator. One-third less cof- 
fee is needed by this method than 
when the grain is coarsely ground and 
boiled as iu the old way.

AH th- details are, however. not 
coiiipl-.'ted, but *o far the plan is to 
begin the baby scoring on Monday aft- 
ernoon. This will take place in the 
roonrs on the Sec* nd street entrance 
floor of the Masonic temple, and will 
be attended to by physicians whi> do- 
nate their services and by qualified 
nurses. The scorin { is done according 
to the rules of the American Medical 
association and ass »ciation charts will 
be used. This scoring will take place 
during tht? afternoons of the days dur- 
ing which the bab v show is open, at 
lea.=it Monday. Tuesiiay. Wednesday and 
Thur.-'day, and Fridty if necessary. At 
the s.ime time a doien or more booths 
will be fitted up la the banquet hall 
downstairs in whicn the several wom- 
en's associations will make exhibits of 
these things which lave an educational 
value foi mothers and those interested 
In such matters. There is no charge 
for anything and .very person inter- 
ested is invited and —welcome. The 
scoring and the exhibition downstairs 
will proceed each day. On Tuesday 
evening the auditorium will be open as 
well as the banquet room, and a series 
of short talks will be given by com- 
petent specialists, two each evening, 
with MUSIC iniersp.'rsed. The Matinee 
Muslcale will furnish mu.slc for one 
evening and the S« ottish Rite quartet 
for another. These talks will begin at 
8:30 o'clock, so as t > give those attend- 
ing an opportunity to take in the ex- 

The infants are to be between the 
ages of 6 months and 5 years, and the 
physicians will mate their awards ac- 
cording to the percentage of perfec- 
tion, irrespective o' age. Some of the 
merchants intend to make a special 
dressing of their windows arid Thomas 
Furniss will show films in one of his 
theaters, which wl 1 show the process 
of keeping milk and wholesome 
and assuring its »e:ilthfulness. Sev- 
eral ministers will preach on the sub- 
ject of "Infant Welfare." and It seems j 
as if every element that can be brought I

Amonp the as.-<ociation3 which have 
accepted a place and a part of the 
work, are the physicians who, in addi- 
tion to the scoring and lecturing, will 
In their booth exhibit things bearing 
on food and feeding. The dentists will 
occupy a booth fitted to demonstrate 
the necessity of caring for the teeth. 
The city health department will make 
an exhibit. Xopemlng will take up the 
tuberculosis question, the Collegiate

Bed Time Tales 

By Clara Ingram Judson 

Old Mr. North Wind's advice 

"Oil. dear!" sighed the wind fairies 
as they looked out over the great big 
lake, "doesn't it loolt awful!" 

"What's that'.'" asked old Mr. North 
Wind, who was blowing close over the 
•wind fairies' heads. "What ARE you 
talking about?* if don't see anything 
awful I" And he sauinlQd his eyes and 
twisted his nose in his effort to see 
what they were talking ahout. 

"We're talking about the lake." ex- 
plained one wind lairy. 

"The lake?" asked old Mr. North 
Wind, looking at the great body of 
water below him. "Il seems to be 
there all right." 

"Of course it's there," laughed the 
fairies all. "how ".coiidd il get away? 
You're a stupid old Mr. North Wind 
this morningi" 

Mr. North Wind bowed with a flour- 
ish and then replieil, "I can return the 
compliment: It is you who are stupid 
— talking about the lake being awful 
when its right undef your feet the 
same as it's always been! Explain 

"You tell him." suggested the big- 
gest wind falr.v. 

"No, you tell him," said the middle- 
sized fairy. 

Now old Mr. North Wind is, as you 
know, a very impatient person and he 
was about to say i something scold- 
ing to those little wind fairies 
when the littlest fairy of all spoke up 
and said, "Please, Mr. North Wind, I'll 
tell you! Only dun't be disappointed, 
for the thing I have to tell I.h not near- 
ly as Important «ts you perhaps thought 
It woujd be from wb*»l the fairies said. 
We don't like the color of the lake this 
morning. We think it is a dreadful 
color. That's what we were saying 
was so awful. >?«iw you know all 
about It." , 

Mr. North Wind Just stared. 

"Do you mean to tell me," he final- 
ly said, "that all t.his fuss has been 
about the color .of the lake?" 

The fairies nodded their heads that 
It was. 

"Well, that's the .best .loke I ever 
heard." cried Mr. Xorth Wind, and he 
laughed, and he laughed, tiir the 
waves dashed high'' on the shores of 
the lake and everybody thought a ter- 
rlhle storm waa" coining! 

"The best JoKe 1 ever heard." he re- 
peated, and then he gradually stopped

Hair Dressing Styles

-stature and physl 
cal beauty over 
their European 
cousins. If they 
would only show 
more individuality 
in their halrdress- 
ing they would be 
the most beautiful 
body of women the 
world has ever 
j known." All very 
I pretty and compll- 
i mentary and rath- 
er true in the broad 
I sense. 
^^ I This Frenchman 

" — ' dilutes his praise 

to a considerable extent when he 
states that while t lere are "three hun- 
dred distinct fashions of dressing the 
hair, the New Yoi k woman, the very 
essence of what is fashionable and 
frivolous, confines herself to twenty 
difforent modes at the most. In Paris, 
especially during these war times they 
are trying to encoirage more diversity 
in the hair dressirg, encouraging sim- 
plicity as far as uossible. 

But will women, especially American 

women, take up with the several halr- 
dresslng methods this Frenchman 
would like to advocate? The woman 
who has unlimited means and the 
woman who has only a limited sum 
make the one great error of following 
what awe known as "the styles." too 
closely and too persistently. 

There Is scarcely a girl whom the 
j enormotis pompadour becomes. Tet all 
I classes- of women are wedded to It as 
I closely as a granny Is to red petti- 
coats. I do not know whether there 
are 300 ways of doing the hair or not. 
It would aeem a rather difficult task 
to arrange woman's crowning glory in 
that number of distinct ways. 

There are ways enough of arranging 
the hair so that every face may be 
suited, and If not actually beautified 
then vastly Improved. You would think 
from observation of the fair crea- 
tures that there had been an abso- 
lute decree sent out bidding women 
adopt the mountainous pompadour, 
with false hair as a bolster, under 
penalty of being considered out of 

The reign of the puff has changed 
things a bit. The trouble* is that they 
are likely to run to puffs regardless 
of their becomingnesH. Following 'a 
fashion because it, Is the mode Is some-

HEN ANYONE starts to tell you 
a story or a personal anec- 
dote which he has told you 
before, is It kinder to warn 
him of that fact or to let him 
go on? 

That subject came up for 
discussion before the open fire the oth- 
er night. 

What do you think about It, reader 

Personally, I would much rather be 
warned at once, but I don't think one 
can rigidly apply the Golden Rule here, 
because other people don't always want 
the same thing one wants one's self. 

I suppose it is a matter which de- 
pends somewhat on circumstances — 
your degree of intimacy with the ra- 
conteur, the stage the story has 
reached before you recognize it, and 
your own ability as an actor or actress. 
Tell Him At Once. If At All. 

If one knows the raconteur only 
slightly, one might not feel like doing 
such an intimate thing as warning him. 
Again, if the story has been half told 
before you recognize It. what use to 
warn him? You add all the embarrass- 
ment of feeling he has bored you to 
all the discomfort of being interrupted 
and robbed of his climax. And yet 
again, if you aren't a good enough act- 
or to appear Interested and amused at 
the proper points, better speak out 
frankly than leave the raconteur to 
suspect his mistake from your man- 

If there is anything I dislike it is to 
be allowed to tell a story and then to 
be assailed with tbe suspicion that I 

have told it before. 

A somewhat similar dilemma occurs 
when one is called up on the telephone 
by a friend, when one has guests or is 
about to go out, or at the moment one 
is in the middle of some task which 
cannot be left. 

When the Telephone Call Ik 

And yet, on .second thoughts. I should 
hardly call this a dilemma at all. be- 
cause, to my mind at least, it admits of 
Just one course of action. Explain to 
the telephone caller that it isn't con- 
venient to talk at just that moment 
and that you will call her up a little 
later. But make ydur explanations im- 
mediately — thus taking any sting out 
of the situation. Nobody likes to have 
the truth leak out in the middle of the 
conversation that the other party didn t 
want to converse and has been doing 
it under duress. 

At times it Is difficult to warn the 
telephone caller without makmg ones 
guests feel embarrassed. For this sit- 
uation, mv telephone friends and I 
have Invented a little formula of warn- 
ing Either one who wants to warn 
the'other inquires, "How is So-and-so?" 
(a mythical personage). The inquiry Is 
a code expression for "I can't talk just 
now." The other understands and 
promptly rings off. 

These are suggestions of my own 
preferences, but no one will go far 
astrs*r in any of these matters who 
tries to regulate Ws conduct by the old 
definition of politeness, "to do or say 
the kindest thing in the kindest way."

Japanese Art Is Subject 

of Bishop's Club Meeting 

A stady of Japanese art was made 
by the Bi&hop's ch;b at the meelinjj 
held last night In the Bishop's club 
room. A valuable collection of Jap- 
anese pieces of art. including cloisonud 
vases, prints, a set of Satsuma and a 
bowl of genuine gold Satsuma was 
loaned by Mrs. E. Frank Barker. Tho 
prints were gifts to her from the Jap- 
anese governmlent and among the ar- 
ticles shown was a plate of monogram 
engravings, the work of the artist 

Miss Mary Naughton, the leader, 
gave an interestiJig talk on Japanese 
wood carving, illustrating by an Occi- 
dental cut the difference between it 
and a Japanese one. The arrangement* 
of (lowers was another phase of Jap- 
anese art which was described. As the 
arrangement is part of the religion of 
the country, a great deal of time-is given 
to the study and as many as six years 
are often required for the mastery of a 
single tlower piece. A particular ilower 
Is dedicated to each month. As tho 
plum blossom Is peculiar to February, 
Miss Naughton sent away for plum 
blossoms and attached to the branches 
blossoms which she made after the 
original ones. These blo-osoms, ar- 
ranged in a rtat bowl, formed the cen- 
terpiece of the tea table from which 
tea was served in Japanese st.vle. Tho 
arrangement of daffodils was also il- 
lustrated: the Japanese follow th« 
plan of having an odd number to form 
an artistic piece. 

MImh Coreoran'n Paper. 

Miss Winifred Corcoran, who read • 
paper on the modern artists, Hopusai 
and HIroshige. brought out as one of 
her points their introducing perspec- 
tive Into Japanese art. 

Miss Loretta O'Gorman sang ".Jap- 
anese Baby" <Luder), "To You" 
(Speak.«i). "Till I Wake" (Finden) and 
Indian love songs (Lleurieuce). Mis» 
Marian Fleischman played "Auf- 
schwung" (Schun>ann) and Prelude la 
A Minor (Chopin). 

Miss Mae Spencer gave the Piblo 
reading .which was interpreted by Rt. 
Rev. James McGolrlck and Miss Mario 
Craig gave 'Art Events" for the cur- 
rent events topic.

The Man Who 

Looks Ahead 

Most persons have some goal to which they 
steer their hopes, but many thouglitlessly unnerve 
the hand, and dull the brain by faulty living, then 
wonder why success is not achieved. 

Among the everyday habits of life that often 
upset health is coffee drinking, an ancient and re- 
spectable custom, but harmful to many. 

The average cup of coffee contains about 2% 
grains of caffeine, which, gradually accumulating 
in the system, often causes nervous prostration, 
heart trouble, mental depression, etc. 

There's an easy way out of coffee troubles — 
quit the coffee and use 


This pure food-drink is a simple combination of 
whole wheat roasted with a little wholesome mo- 
lasses — nothing else. It has a snappy, aromatic 
flavour similar to coffee but is entirely free from 
the drug, caffeine, or any other injurious substance. 

There are two forms of Postum. The original Postum 
Cereal must be boiled, 15c and 25c packages; Instant 
Postum soluablc in a cup of hot water, 30c and 50c tins. 
Both have equal flavour, and cost about he same. 

For those who appreciate the opportunity and 
power that goes with health

Duluth and Superior Com- 
mercial Clubs Join 
in Request. 

The Duluth and Superior Commercial 
clubs have joined forces in an effort to 
have the Federal lighthouse board es- 
tablish a separate lighthouse district 
at this point, taking in Lake Superior 
and St. Mary's river. 

At present this district is under the 
Detroit office. The total district cov- 
ered by that office Is becoming ko large 
that It Is unwieldy and all parts. It Is 
believed, are not receiving as fair 
treatm«-nt as they would were the at- 
tention of the otficl»ls less scattered. 

Capt. Alex McDougall brought the 
matter of liaving a lighthouse district 
established as outlined, before the pub- 
lic affairs committee of the Duluth 
Commercial club at Its last meeting 
and was empowered as chairman of the 
rivers and harbors committee to go 
ahead and try to obtain the co-opera- 
tion of a similar committee of the Su- 
perior club in an effort to prociue 
such a division of the district. 

Capt. McDougall arranged a meet-, 
ing with the committee of the Superior 
club, and It was held a few days ago 
In Superior, Capt. McDougall and F. 
B. Spelman attending as representatives 
of the Duluth club's committee. At 
that time the Superior committee 
agreed to co-operate and immediately 
had a letter sent to Congressman L<.n- 
root asking the proper way to procetd. 

Yesterday afternoon the Duluth com- 
mittee met and talked over arrange- 
ments for a campaign to obtain a 
separate lighthouse district. Further 
meetings will be held and Congress- 
man Miller will be appealed 

St. Paul, Minn., Feb. 16. — (Special to 
The Herald.) — Efforts on the part of 
the Cummins Minnesota presidential 
managers to force off the presidential 
preference primary ballot certain Cum- 
mins delegates whom they alleged filed 
in bad faith j-ecelved a slight setback 
today when attorneys representing 

three of the alleged bad faith dele- 
gates appeared In supreme court and 
gave notice of u fight. 

The matter came vip in the supreme 
court on mandamus proceeding brought 
by H. W. AVest of St. Paul to have 
certain delf^ates removed from the 
list, but on the reciuest of James A. 
Morton, a former well known politi- 
cian, the case was continued until to- 
morrow. The excuse offered was that 
one attorney was sick. 

Three Offer Fight. 

The appearance of A. C. Egleston, an 
attorney of Minneapolis, and Fred A. 
Pike of St. Paul was responsible, it 
was said, for the change in plans. 
Thev appeared in behalf of Bernhart 
Englestad, B. F. Locke and B. S. Ny- 
rot and announced that they would 
protest any attempt to force the three 
from the ballot. 'The three men named 
reside in Minneapolis. They are among 
the number of delegates ip question. 

Following the continuance of tlie 
case, James F. Arueson, a Cummins 
worker, filed with the court an affi- 
davit adding to the charges of bad

been advanced to W. H. Williamson 
of the local high school by the North- 
ern Farm company of Rockford, 111., 
to cover expenses in small peat soil 
investigations, being the first step to- 

wards the proposed reclamation of 

large tracts of shallow peat soils. Ti*i9 
company alone has eight or ten sec- 
tions of select, shallow peat holdings 
which was proposed to reclaim by 
proper treatment with lime rock, rock 
phosphate or potash as experimenln 
may reveal the deficiencies of the sfil. 
Check plot experimentation, accoiding 
to the very latest method.s. will be 
the rule in this work. Alsike cl'>v»-r,

holdings of such lands in Northern 
Minnesota the experiment will attract 
a very lively local interest.

— he doe- not greatly distinguish himself 
or his party. 

VVf l.ave it to the parties described if it 
doesn't show peculiar enterprise to print a 
detaiifd past tense story of a weddin* the 
day < it takes place 


The chief reason why Great Britain has 
ristn with great difficulty to the demands 
o! tlic great crisis that has come to her is 
P u ti^aiislup. Britain has too many, men 
whi art- thinking in terms of party wel- 
fare, and too few who are thinking wholly 
m ti^rni-; of national* welfare. At every 
step, c^ ■!! under the coalition government. 
thx4 i»aii(. of partisanship has lowered like 
a blight over British hopes. 

X.>r need we go to Great Britain to find 
thi> ?.inpid littleness standing in the way of 
national prosperity and greatness. We can 
iind plenty of it at home; only it is our 
g>r,(l fortune that no threat of national 
Ignominy or extinction exists to give this 
bligltt of partisanship fatal possii>:iities — 
AS VI-.T. 

No great and vital question has arisen — 
ex. -pt prohibition, if that is either or 
Mial. and this the parties agree in evading 
as fa! as they can — that can be considered 
without partisan confusion. Ninety-nine 
per cent of the ^discussion of every ques- 
tion is partisan, and therefore misleading 
ard The momejitum oi con- 
si'lerati<)n is not toward an accurate, just 
and wise solution of the problem, but to- 
ward getting party advantage out of it and 
making it a disadvantage to the other party. 
And that, of course, gets the country no- 

The luaiu reason this is so is that the 
people oi this country have delegated their 
powers too much to politicians. They have 
done t«»o little thinking for themselves. 
They have thought— when they thought at 
^tll— too much of party advantage, v.hich in 
itself is le«;s than nothing, and too little of 
the common welfare. 

For this reason, there is interest and en- 
couragement and hope in the spirit oi the 
address made by President John H. Fahey 
to the fourth annual convention of the 
chamber of commerce of the United States. 
He appealed to the organized business 
bodies of the country to banish not only 
conscious but unconscious partisanship. He 
urged "constructive thinking" and earnest 
pursuit of knowledge on the part of men 
of affairs. While it is proper to condemn 
the political quack and the time-serving 
demagogue, he said, it is equally neces- 
sary to commend the intelligent and sin- 
cere legislator or administrator, and to 
support measures that are demanded by 
the general welfare and involve no serious 
injury to any legitimate interest. The av- 
erage legislator, he said, is not so., bad as 
is some times represented to be. 
rhis is good advice, and it will be well 
for the country if it is followed. 
The associations of busiaesi* men with 

politics have too often been little to their 
credit and jtill less to the country's ad- 
vantage. Tl ey have participated in it too 
much as traffickers with those prepared to 
dispense favors at public expense for a 

Why has he demagogue too often pros- 
pered? Because the relations between busi- 
nesTs and go ernment have given him much 
hateful truth to deal in. and because the 
people have thought too little about public 
affairs. No demagogue can live a minute 
in a society that does its own thinking and 
thinks clearly. The confusions of partisan- 
ship create a most favorable host for the 
germs of demagoguery. 

When a party has a clear, vivid and 
sound progiam to meet a real and menac- 
ing situation, it is patriotic to be partisan. 
When the situation that created the party 
has passed, and the party becomes an end, 
not a means, then partisanship is often very 
doubtful patriotism. When partisanship 
has become so meaningless that it is actual- 
ly an obstruction to the national welfare, 
the unpartiian thinker who keeps himself 
clear of it s the best patriot and the best

In '«pit4 of tho attempts of the pro- 
\lly pr. ss to twist the president s 
speeches in which he acknowledges his 
change of mind In being no longer too 
proud to fight" into « threat against 
Germany it Is fairly obvious that the 
president s words were addressed to 
Great Bi Itain. With Germany we have 
only one matter on which we still dia- 
agie-^. I ven in this matter Germany has 
practical y inet our terms. England on 
tl 9 oihei hand derides our protests and 
overrides every appeal to international 
law witli an Insolent reference to her 
dreadnaughts.— The Fatherland. 

If the "i»ro-Ally" press has been constru- 
ing the president's appeal for sensible pre- 
paredness as a threat aimed at Germany, 
we think it should not have done it, and 
that it wa> an impudent thing for it to do. 
We think, too, that the Fatherland should 
not have construed the presidents appeal 
as a at Great Britain, and that it 
was an ii ipudent thing for IT to do. 

We dot "t think anybody has a right to 
twist the president's very plain utterances 
into a threat at anybody. He has issued 
no threat and no warning, or anything that 
could po.-sibly be construed as such by 
any but partisans in the European conflict 
whose partisanship is to them a higher 
consideration than their Americanism. 

It is tn e that the .\merican dispute with 
Germany is reaching a harmonious settle- 
ment, and that there is every prospect that 
within a short time we shall have no basis 
of difference whatever with Germany. It 
is also true that our differences with Great 
Britain are far froin adjusted, and that they 
may yet be the occasion of bad feeling. 
That the-e purely commercial disputes will 
become tie occasion of war with a nation 
as deeply interested in the integrity of the 
Monroe doctrine as we arje is unthinkable.

"The Drink or the Job" 

This story is about an officer, one of the 
jolllest, cleanest, squarest officers In ottr 
battalion— Lieut. Campbell. I think he w^s 
from London, Ont. He was in charge of tl^e 
machine gun section. Ridel That man just 
seemed to have grown on a horse. And 
game! I'll never forget him before the 
charge, walking up and down the line — we 
were all flat on our stomachs In op^n 
ground— swinging his little bamboo ca»e 
and amoklng a cigarette. 

"Campbell, lie down; you get on ray 
nerves." Uellowed Lieut. -Col. Beecher, who 
was killed a few moments after. 

But Campbell only laughed, and kept 
walking up and down, blowing smoke rings 
up at the bursting shells, and swinging that 
absurd little cane of his. He hadn't a sword, 
a rifle, a bayonet or even a revolver. Just a 
cute little silver-handled cane about as thick 
as my little finger. 

Campbell wasn't just reckless. He didn t 
mfan to show off. I think he felt it was 
part of an officer's duty to inspire the men 
with courage. particularly during these 
beastly waiting periods before a charge. If 
vou're ever going to have a blue funK It'a 
when you're waiting on the ground for 
something to happen, and can't do anything 
to hurry it into happening. 

Anyway. Campbell always was light and 
frrvolous when he was going into battle. The 
prospect seemed to Inspire him with a kind 
of superb gaiety and he kidded the men till 
they forgot that the shells were falling 
around them and that every once in a while 
a poor guy rolled over on his side with a^ 
little grupt and then was silent forever. 

Well, we charged, and drove the Germans 
back for quite a dl.'stance. Then they got 
reinforcements from somewhere and pressed;^ 
us steadily back. It was all hand-to-hand^ 
fighting, with the bayonets being used free-' 
Iv. I had gone forward with the "Sulclda' 
Mob." as the bomb throwers are called, and 
had come through without a scratch, but 
we were out of bombs, and things •were 
breaking against us. The only place for ua 
to make for was the trenches, and to reach 
them we had to face a murderous machine 
gun fire. The whole battalion was In dan- 
ger of being wiped •out there. 

Then Campbell pulled his hero stunt. Keep 
the circumstances In mind. Here we were 
at close quarters with the Germans pouring 
on us In droves. If we could reach our 
trenche.s we would have a chance, but to get 
there through the hail of fire from all sides 
and at the same time save ourselves from 
being slaughtered by the superior forces In 
front of us seemed lmi)08sible. The only 
thing that could stop the rush of the Teu- 
tons was machine gun fire. Remember that 
these little devils spit 660 shots a minute. 
Troops advancing shoulder to shoulder 
against a g;,un firing at maximum speed and 
turned slowly from side to side have about 
as much chance to avoid bullets as a 
mob 'has to dodge water drops from a fire 
hose played on It at close range. 

Our machine gun section was badly shat- 
tered, and there was but one gun left. A 
section, you know. Is carried by three men. 
One has the gun Itself, the other the tripod 
on which to st t It, and the other the am- 

Lieut. Campbell had grabbed the gun part 
from a falling man. and a corporal whose 
name I don't remember had the ammuni- 
tion The fellow carrying the tripod had 
been killed, and the tripod itself captured. 
Cann-'bell and the corporal got In the rear 
of our retreating line and directly In front 
of the German rush. In less time than It 
takes to write It, they had figured out the 
one thing that would save the battalion 
from being cut to pieces before It gained the 
trench shelter. Campbell dropped to his 
knees. The corporal mounted the gun on 
his back and worked it while a third chap 
fed the ammunition. 

Well, when that gun began to spit out 
Its more than ten shots a second at the close- 
ly packed Germans the situation was changed 
Immediately. They were brave enough and 
tried to press forward but the men In front 
fell so fckst that the second line had to 
climb to get over them. That gun firing 
its 660 shots per minute simply deluged their 
solid ranks with lead, and at close range the 
execution was terrific. 

I don't know how long Campbell stayed 
on his knees, while the corporal fired, but 
I do know that the Germans sent rank after 
rank up In a wild effort to break through. 
They couldn't go around because the ap- 
proach was between two hills. They weren't 
able to get enough by that awful fire to 
hit us hard and our battalion reached the 
trenches with only the normal number of 
killed and wounded. The lieutenant and his 
machine gun had saved us. 

When It was all over Campbell fell un- 
conscious — not from a wound, but from 
pain. The corporal was killed as he was 
dragging him to shelter. Pain— that man 
had a right to fall from it. The gun had 
got hot from firing and It had burned 
through his uniform, through the naked 
flesh to the backbone'. 

Yes, Campbell recovered, and was given 
the D. S O— Distinguished Service Order— a 
decoration awarded offloers. He recovered 
to do exactly the same thing again when 
part of our crowd was In a tight fix at 
(iavinchey. The only difference was that 
this time the trench had been blown up 
by a mine and was in such a mess that there 
was no place to set the tripod. Campbell 
knew what to do, and he did It. He did It 
till the battalion was saved, and his back 
once more just a seare* mass of burned 

I know what his back looked like, for I 
saw It when we got the body back to the 
lines. Campbell and the men who tended 
the gun with him had stuck just a wee bit 

too long. ,r ^ J. -, * 

Well, anyway, he grot the V. C. — at least 
his folks back In London did. 

Keeping Up With 

Minnesota Editors 

t Amerlcau IdealM and Weakneitives. 

i^ Opinions may differ materially as to what 
ia the leading motive in the life of the 

J'.verage American and what the leading 
deal. We have been charged with being 
a nation of materialists, bent on getting 
money, getting money all the time and all 
we can of It — not to save particularly, but 
to spend. Our aim is not to save more, 
but to earn more. If we cannot have what 
we want, w*. do not do without, but work 
harder for It. We believe In gauging our 
pleasures by the cost and not the satisfac- 
tion we get out of them. When we make 
up bur minds that we have been foolish 
and frittered away our possessions, we try 
to recoup, not by spending less, but by earn- 
ing more. 

It must be admitted that we can, as a 
people, make money. We can save only a 
small part in comparison with other nations, 
but we do have the knack of getting It. 
The salaries paid our officials and leading 
business men would make some European 
princes envloUs, and the wages of American 
workmen have attracted hoards of Euro- 
pean laborers to our shores. 

No one denies that we make money, but 
is that the leading motive in American life? 
The questions: "What In your opinion are 
the leading Ideals of the men with whoin 
you associate?" and "What do you con- 
sider to be the chief points of weakness in 
American life?" were put to about one 
hundred leading men — lawyers, bankers, 
editors, business men, farmers, scientists 
and others, and the replies show that forty- 
six consider service to one's fellows to be 
the leading Ideal, while twenty-eight thl^k 
the making of money for selfish enjoyment 
or personal power Is the leading motive. 

A Wall Street financier and vice presi- 
dent of a large trust company said: 

"I think that the leading ideals of the 
men with whom I associate are In general 
the ethics of Wall Street, where a man's 
word is of greater value than anywhere 
else In the country. I feel, too. that their 
attitude has become much less provincial 
than heretofore, and that often the good 
of the country, the state and business at 
large is considered by them more than indi- 
vidual profit." 

A prominent magazine editor replied: 
"Our Ideals are: 
"Honesty and integrity. 
"Intellectual achievement. 
"Beauty In art and music as a solace in 

"Domestic happiness." 
A congressman had this to say: 
"Extravagance in living. Most Ameri- 
cans prefer to spend money rather than not 
to spend It, and therefore very maty spend 
money foolishly and upon things which 
were better not purchased. 

"The feeling that what we do ougnt to 
meet the approval of other nations, for ex- 
ample, rather than our own approval. This 
is because as a nation and as Indiviluals w© 
are still rather more vain than proud." 
A Boston banker wrote: » 
"The passion for 'getting on,' with ac- 
companying failure to see what one »s yet- 
ting on toward. 

"Pride In power and in the ownership 
of things. Too great reliance on the final- 
ity of material. 

"The lust for spending and having others 
know that one spends." 

A religious director of 6,000 university stu- 
dents answered: 

"One weakness is that of indulgence. 
Our life Is crammed these days with oppor- 
tunities for relaxing; the picture show, the 
ball game, the theater, the novel, and the 
canoe grip the lives of a great many and 
absorb their best energies." 

A bank examiner gave this list: 
"Materialistic tendencies. 
".Striving for effect at the expense of any 
or all Ideals. 

"Lack of simplicity. 

"Lack of serious application to present or 
future problems. 

"Loss of early Ideals through the break- 
ing up of what formerly constituted 'home 


"i.ack of Interest in religious thought." 

The president of one of the largest life in- 
surance companies answered: 

"In business — 

"To succeed. Success means more than 
mere money; It means the power to advance 
methods and thereby benefit others. 

"Socially— ^ . • * . _„ ♦»,.* 

"An utter contempt for 'society as that 
word Is u.sualy applied. No especial pro- 
gram that does not aim directly at ititel-

Baudette Region: Montreal, in Eastern 
Canada, held a winter carnival for many 
years until It got the reputation of being 
located near the North Pole. Then It quit 
St. Paul held a big winter carnival this 
month and expects to hold another next 
year. The .Saintly City will l^arn after a 

A good many persons say they read news- 
papers from a sense of civic duty. Per- 
haps they enjoy skimming over the society 
column or reading the items concerning the 
personalities of musicians and actresses, but 
they read the newspapers essentially bopau»« 
it is educative. It is necessary; the idea is 
to keep up with things. 

Certainly the newspaper* do perform an 
educative function but that is not the real 
reason why every one glances over the pa- 
per each day. Take away the social col- 
umn and substitute an article on political 
economy and how many persons would turn 
to that page? Newspapers are popular be- 
cause they provide things to talk about. 

Talk is a necessity In this generation. 
Every one, foolish or wise, must have some- 
thing to talk about. Loquacity is more than 
a social advantage; it is a social necessity. 
At dinner or at tea each person must carry 
his own weight in conversation. The point 
was reached long ago where ingenuity only 
rescued the dinner guest from unwilling 
starvation. The function of talking is more 
important than the function of eating. 

This Is not true in the country. Farm- 
ers are supposed to be taciturn and relapse 
Into long silences. In country hotels the 
amiable boniface feels it a duty to supply 
the heavy artillery of talk, and generally he 
rumbles on all by himself. The habit of talk 
has not invaded the rural districts to any 

But in the city talk has become neces- 
sary. And newspapers fill the need of sub- 
jects. New^spapers supply blank conversation- 
al cartridges of every caliber, which may he 
shot off harmlessly but effectively at any 
social encounter. Starting out the day, one 
refills his ammunition chest with an as- 
sortment of subjects and facts, ready for 
any eventuality. Silence Is a deadly thing, 
to be avoided at all cost. 

Perhaps this is one of the reasons why 
so many find a lure in the restaurant and 
cafe. There they are relieved at Interval.s 
from the oppression of -garrulity by the pres- 
ence of other sounds. It does not take a 
music lover to appreciate the strains — or 
should they be called jolts — of the popular 
cafe orchestras. The tired talker of noth- 
ings and retailer of spicy bits and attrac- 
tive nonsense finds no attraction 'n those 
vast and spacious dining halls where no ear- 
splitting clarinet or brassy trumpet supplies 
the perfect peace that he desires. In the 
ordinary cabaret he could check his tongue 
in the cloakroom If it were not a neces- 
sarii' adjunct to the enjoyment of his 

Either conversation or some such substi- 
tute for it, as music must be provided for the 
good American. Newspapers provide the one. 
Musicians the other.

"1 should like to know," said a friend, 
"on what ground jou selected that boy, 
who had not a single recommendation." 

"You are mistaken," said the gentleman, 
"he had a great many. He wiped his feet 
when he came in, and closed the door after 
him, showing that he Is careful. He gave 
up his seat instantly to a lame old man, 
showing that he is kind and thoughtful. H« 
took off his cap when he came in, and an- 
swered m.v questions promptly and re- 
spectfully, showing that he is polite and 
gentlemanly. He picked up the book which 
I had purposely laid upon the floor, and re- 
l)laced it on the table, while all the rest 
stepped over it or shoved it aside; and he 
waited quietly for his turn. Instead of push- 
ing and crowding, showing he is honest and 
orderly. When 1 talked with him, I noticed 
that his clothes were carefully brushed, hin 
hair in nice order and his teeth as white

Rippling Rhymes 

By Walt Mason 

The truth's discouraging and hate- 
ful, but mighty few are truly grateful. 
We go around and spend our money 
to make the people's lives more sunny > 
we carry soup and pies and ganders to 
folks who have the-yaller janders, we 
carry tea, in bowls of chiny, to some 
poor widow shedding briny, we cough 
up plunks, our bank roll dwarfin', to 
help the sad and needy orphan. They 
thank us then, in Cireek and Russian, 
in High Dutch, Low Dutch, French 
and Prussian. So far as words go 
they are grateful: they hand up lan- 
guage by the plateful. But, in their 
hearts profanely smirking, they say, 
"What is the use of working, to earn 
our victuals bread-and-cheesy, Wlien 
jays like these are so blamed easy?- 
They'll clothe us when we're looking* 
seedy, they'll feed us when we're feicl- 
ing greedy ; they'll bring provisions to 
our attics, and dope us when we have 
rheumatics." Still, though unwcWthy] 
some are proving, we on our kindly^ 
rounds keep moving, in tenements ^n^ 
cellars smelly, distributing our soup 
and jelly. 

Pittsburgh Press: A cartoon published 
In one of the magazines represents a young 
soldier standing beside a newly-made mound 
on which there is a cross. The roughly-made 
cross mark» the resting place of 'only an- 
other" killed In battle. And the sorrowing 
comrade who stands near is probably won- 
dering: "Is it worth while?" 

He Is thinking, as he stands near, not only 
of the departed comrade, but of a mother 
miles and miles away, perhaps right now 
scanning through her sllverrimmed spec- 
tacles the long casualty lists. Her eyes, as 
tired as her hair Is gray, refuse to be moved 
until with aching heart for others and a 
gasp of relief for herself, she has read the 
last name— and her boy's Is not there! But 
In a few more days she will know— how 
could she have expected otherwise— tiiat it 
has happened. And then! She wUl soon join 
him in the great beyond. 

Perhaps the young soldier near the cross 
is wondering how long It will be until an- 
other gray-haired mother will know, too. 
But soon his revery must end. Soon his 
thoughts must turn from home, friends and 
loved ones. Unseen tears will vanish. He 
must turn again to the business of war of 
the slaughter of an unknown, unseen foe. 
Soon he is again in the thick of battle. 
Shrapnel bursts on aU sides. There Is des- 
perate charge from the trenches. Shells 
whiz by, and — more comrades fall. With a 
demonlsh fire In hl» eyes he hurls grenades 
with curses and presses the point of his 
bayonet Into the breast of some other moth- 
er's boy. Whose? It matters little* 

The man who stood In tears at the grave 
of his comrade a few hours before is not 
the same man. Battle gives no time for 
sympathy, for fear, for thought of home or 
love. It is wholly the business of war; 
the business of murder and ruin. There 
will soon be many more freshly-made 
graves- there will soon be many more such 
scenes as the one pictured In the cartoon; 
there will soon be more comrades who will 
murmur In the twilight: -Is It worth 

How long will the world delay the answer?

A Ureat and Conra»eo«a Appointment. 

The Independent: President Wilson has 
done a great and courageous thing In send- 
ing to the senate the nomination of Louis 
D. Brandeis of Massachusetts to be a mem- 
ber of the supreme court. 

It Is a great thing, because Mr. Brandeis 
l» Ideally equlpt in learning, statesmanship 
and character to discharge the functions ot 
that exalted office. 

It Is a courageous thing because Mr. 
Brandeis has Incurred powerful enemies 
while defending the people's rights, and a 
political storm is bound to br«w at a tlm» 
when the president needs every atom of sup- 
port he can get from both friend and foa. 

Let the senate not hesitate to confirm the 
appointment of this able great-hearted and 
>uat Jew. He will add strength to the 
court, especially when those momentous 
questions of social justloe come before it 
that from now on seem destined to challenge 
with Increasing insUtenoe lU auffust ar- 
bitrament. > ~

Tact, rightly so named as being the spir-

shades of feeling. The person who has most 
tact Is the person who Is most keenly alive 
to subtle, half-revealed variations of taste 
and mood, and who is therefore best able 
to sympathize. Such a one may be cruel,

Call it just th.i medulla and never 
mind its shape. It is the upper en- 
'.he spinal cord, the 
nch long, and lies 
upon the base of 
the skull just with- 
in the opening 
where the spinal 
cord enters. 

In the medulla 
are the nerve cen- 
ters which control 
the most vital 
functions — the cen- 
ters of respiration, 
swallowing, breath- 
ing, the vasomotor 
center, centers gov- 
erning heart ac- 
tion, the sneezing 
center, the cough- 
ing center, the cen- 
ter governing the 

mium BRAD/ a) 

act of vomiting 
and others. 

In vivisection t is a common prac- 
tice to slip a slender, probe-like in- 
strument Into the medulla and break 
the soft substan. e up. This kills the 
animal instant^ and painlessly — or 
with no more pain than would be 
caused by a hyp* dermic needle. 

In this little medulla of man, a 
structure you co ild Inclose in a nut- 
shell, life resides Other parts of the 
brain are essent al for conscious 

One student held his breath eight min- 
utes, another ten minutes, by Inhaling 
some oxygen Just before the test. 
Probably the nearest approach to in- 
stantaneous death Is a powerful elec- 
tric shock through the medulla, and 
brain. Even then the heart may con- 
tinue to beat feebiy for a time. A 
person drowned may be to all appear- 
ances dead — no heart beat, no breath- 
ing and yet be resuscitated If the 

bystander knows how to perform 
Shaeffers method of artificial respira- 
tion, which every child can learn in a 
few moments. Death Is a relative 
term. No one can say really when life 
ends, excepting in our arbitrary fash- 
ion of defining death by the cessation 
of heart-beat and breathing. 

In the medulla life presides. And in 
one little point the very center of life 
is situated. What do we find when we 
scrutinize this area under the micro- 
scope? We find cells, protoplasm. Be- 
yond that we can never hope to see 
with these scaly eyes of ours. Of 
course there Is something beyond that. 
It Is what various peoples call Allah,

Is a "Torrens title," ind how; obtained? 
Also approximate coat if former title Is 
clear? (2) What Ib the meaning of 
the letters G. O. P.? » 

Ans.— (1) A "Tonens'f! title is a title 
to land that is established under what 
is known a» the '/Torrens" system, 
which was legally estafilished by the 
legislature in this state some years ago. 
Under this system an owner of proper- 
ty can go before the district court and 
secure an order under which adver- 
tisement is made fonany.j»erson or per- 
sons holding a claim. against that prop- 
erty. Any claims presented are then 
adjusted by the court. Und from that 
date the owner's ri^ht and title to the 
property is completely established by 
registry, without the nefd of securing 
an abstract of title and a legal opinion 
on the question The cost of secur- 
ing such a title on any given piece 
of land varies with the conditions. No 
doubt the court could give you, in ad- 
vance, a pretty accurate estimate of 
the costs. If there are no claims to bo 
settled. It would seem that the coat 
should be slight. (2) "Grand Old

be the vital point. When It is de-

death occurs sin ultaneously with the 
j cessation of br-athing. Any normal 
person can hold his breath forty sec-

more deeply for two minutes he can 
easily hold his bi eath for two minutes.

Albin Carlson, Cusson, Minn.: Fol- 
lowing Is a question 1 would like to 
have decided: A plays a six; B plays 
a nine and calls "fifteen-two;" A plays 
a seven and calls "twenty-twi.;" B 
plays an eight and calls "thirty for four 
and a 'go' makes five." Is that right? 

Ans. — It is presumed that the game 
is crlbbage. The scoring is right, pro- 
vided A had no ace to play. Of courso 
if A held an ace he would play It and 
call "thirty-one for two."

All you have to do is 
to look for three points. 
Take any cigarette you 
know. Then ask you]> 
Is its taste just what 
you like best ? 

Is it comfortable to your 
throat and tongue— free 
from bite or hotness? 



Smaller would w irk out proportionate, 
ly. And sixteen years ago I could 
have bought all the land 1 wanted at 
J5 an acre. 

To Illustrate further: I know a little 
Swede who camt to America seven or 
tight years ago and worked some years 
for a rich neigh Uor; now he has nine 
heavy young horses, two colts, a com- 
plement of fan I machinery, and he 
only got half th. crop for three yearn, 
us the landlord got the other half. 
This shows liow profitable it is to own 
a farm tiiat is Immediately available 
for a crop, like u prairie, so a.-^ to pay 
some dividend tl e lirjii year after pur- 
chasing. In son e cases the first crop 
has paid the pr ce of the land. How 
small a paltry ;i or fi per cent looka 
in the face of th^se facts! 

Now, as to ti^-preclatlon: A con- 
.stant howl Is ioing up fron> many 
throats of the Increasing cost 
of living. All he necessities of life 
are, on the average, increasing in 
cost. (See the business forecast for 
tho month of January. 1916. issued by 
the City Nationil bank.) "The aver- 
age of commodity prices shows an In- 
crefctse of more than 10 per cent for 
the year 1915." In other words, the 
purchasing pow 'r of money has de- 
creased In the SI. me ratio. How people 
are cheated by putting money at 6 per 
cent interest wh'-n the annual average 
purchasing pow.-r of their money de- 
preciates more han 6 per cent: And 

.easily obtained to admit of Its publica- 
tion here.)

To the Editor *.f The Herald: 

Some days a^o It was stated in The 
Herald that tht re were 500.000 bushels 
of potatoes in ;4t. Louis county at this 
time to be sold and that *Iostetter and 
Larson were g »ing to make an effort 
to get cash buv 'r.s for them. It sounded 
tlshy to me. an I 1 asked Mr. Hostetter 
if It was true that there were that 
many potatoes In this county at this 
time. He flat! r denied that he had 
said even 50.000 bushels, and depre- 
cated very mui h that .«uch an errone- 
ous statement .should be credited to 
him Such gnus misstatements do not 
boost the cciiniy at all, especially 
when outsider? And out that we have 
not got the goods. The farmers who 
have a few bu."hels to sell at this time 
are running up against such unwar- 
ranted statem< nts. The consumers In 
the city are ntt profiting by It. for the. 
extra gain goes Into the pockets of the 
dealer. A farn er, no matter how good 
hi.s stuff is. will have to sell from 10 
to 25 cents per bushel below the whole- 
sale price, and dealers expect to make 
more per bush d than potatoes sold for 

last fall. „ ^ n>,^^7'^^^-

Rheumatism is easier to avoid than 
to cure, states a well-known author- 
ity. We are advised to dress warmly; 
keep the feet dry; avoid exposure; 
eat . less meat, but drink plenty of 
good water. is a direct result of 
eating too much meat and other rich 
foods that produce uric acid which is 
absorbed into the blood. It is the 
function of the kidneys to Alter this 
acid from the blood and cast it out 
in the urine; the pores of the skin 
are also a means of freeing the blood 
of this impurity. In damp and chilly 
cold weather the skin pores are closed 
thus forcing the kidneys to do double 
work, they become weak and sluggish 
and fall to eliminate the uric acid 
which keeps accumulating and cir- 
culating through the system eventu- 
ally settling in the Joints and muscles, 
causing stiffness, soreness and pain 
called rheumatism. 

At the first twinge of rheumatism 
get from any pharmacy about four 
ounces of Jad Salts; put a tablespoon- 
ful in a glass of water and drink be- 
fore breakfast each morning for a 
week. This is said to eliminate uric 
acid by stimulating the kidneys to 
normal action, thus ridding the blood 
of these impurities.

Commissioner Silberstein's 

Plan for Injured Workmen 

Not Permissible. 

Because the workmen's conpensation 
act of Minnesota permits an injured 
employe to select his own physician, 
Commls.sioner Silberstein, safety head, 
may find it impossible to establish the 
plan of having health department doc- 
tors attend all persona hurt while in 
the employ of the city. 

At the council meeting Monday aft- 
ernoon the safety head announced that 
he would take the matter up at once 
with Health Director Fahey and that in 
the future all employes of the city hurt 
while at work would be attended by 
health department physicians. In order 
to save heavy medical expenses. 

This moining Commissioner Silber- 
stein learned that the state workmen's 
law allows a man the privilege of 
choosing his own physician. 

"We will not be able to force our 
physicians on injured employes," said 
the safety head, "but whenever possi- 
ble a health departntent doctor will 
haiidle such cases. It means a big 
saving to the city, as fees now paid at- 
tending physicians will be stopped, 
while the city will have better knowl- 
edge of all injury cases, should claims 
tor damages be filed."

It is claimed that the teleautograph 
is being introduced for instruction and 
report work in connection with the biff 
coast-guard guns, where telcphon<'9 
are shaken out of commission and con- 
cus.sions and general battery-wracking 
happenings. The teleautograph does 
the business and with less chance ot 
error, it is claimed.

A Distinctive Reason 

What is the chief reason for the superi- 
ority of Royal Baking Powder? 

There are several good reasons, but there 
is one which distinguishes Royal from other 
baking powders. 

This reason, which every woman should 
know, is that Royal Baking Powder is made 
from cream of tartar, which comes from 
grapes. This means a healthftil fruit origin. 
It means natural food as distingfuished from 
mineral substitutes used in other baking 

There is no alum nor phosphate in Royal 
Bakings Powder.

Prize Winners Will Be An-

It is getting so that nearly all mag- 
aziiKs dt\>ted to commviuity develop- 
ment, and some ethers of a more gen- 
eral nature, are giving Duluth much 
f-ia* of late. The latest to advertise 
this rity in the way of a special ar- 
jil-f is the American City of New 
York. In fact this is the second or 
tSilrd time that this magazine has done 
s( In ihe current issue, Duluth gets 
boi'^lt-d In two departments. One is 
an article by George D. McCarthy, as- 
!=•. slant secretary of the Duluth Com- 
mercial club, on "Morgan Park — a New 
Tvpe of liKlu.<»trial Community," anil 
the other is simply by a picture il- 
lu.«»lrating another article, showing 
Duluth sewer building by the unem- 
ploved in winter. 

lin the larger article numerous il- 
lustrations are given, well illustrating 
Duluth'.9 industrial settlement. Mr. Mc- 

Carthy also announces in this article 
something new as to Morgan Park, 
which will be an athletic field, and 

"The ground reserved for the pur- 
pose forms a natural amphitheater and 
will be suitable not only for sports and 
j contests, but f >r festivals and pag- 
1 eants." 

1 This athletic ground will be on the 
I west side of Morgan Park as now laid 
; out, and Is in a hollow section of 
[ground, with gradually sloping sides 
I and having a large area of flat ground 
or such that would be easy to level off. 
Mr. McCarthy also speaks of the 
1 plans the steel company has for In- 
, dustrial housing In the future. This 
will be done In the tract back of the 
present community, where the com- 
pany will erect concrete houses and 
apartments whi ;h may be rented more 
cheaply than tde type of house al-

Truman G. Brooke of Lakeside sub- 
mitted the accompanying drawing 
during the contest. It shows the most 
careful study and excellent craftsman- 1 
ship In the execution of the idea. 

Men were treated with considerable 
harshness and their lack of faith, es- | 
pecially in religion, was considered one 
of their cardinal vices. The use of 
liquor, tobacco and other bad habits 
wtre severely criticized. Some of the 
letters follow: 

Lewis A. Kirkpatriok, Bismarck, 
N. D.: 

"A woman's vices — 

"1. I consider a woman who hablt- 
, ually lies as possessing the worst vice 
: of all. 

I "2. I would name the gossiping 
woman because she is a nuisance and 
a trouble-breeder wherever she goes. 

"3. "The woman who possesses van- 
i "4. A deceitful woman is to be 
avoided by all. 
j "6. The extravagant woman pos- 
! sesses a vice which causes much un- 
', necessary trouble and wrangling. 
I "8. The selfiah woman is false to 
her sex. 

"7. The woman possessing malic- 
iousness makes no lasting f ru nds. 

"8. A woman who Is slothful Is a 
disgrace to herself. 

"9. An Immoral woman is rather to 
be pitied than censured. 

"10. There is absolutely no excuse 
for the careless woman and she is the 
one whom it is hardest to put up 

"A woman's virtues — 

"1. A chaste woman is to be hon- 
ored above all others. 

"2. We find the society of a wise 
woman is profitable. 

"3. A loving woman is a joy and 
comfort to all with whom she comes 
in contact. 

"4. One enjoys ib^ company of an 
amiable woman. 

"5. A faithful woman Is appreciated 
by her friends and respected by her 

"6. A kind woman is a blessing to 
her associates. 

"7. A considerate woman is .an in- 
spiration to her companions. 

"8. A gentle woman is a rebuke to 
her less careful sisters. 

"9. A modest woman is like an 
oasis in a dry and dusty desert. 

"10. The righteous woman will pos- 
sess all these virtues and many more. 
In fact this virtue is the most neces- 
sary of all."

Mrs. Blanche E. Kinipion, Minneapo- 

lis, Minn.:

Mrs. Ed. A. T. H.,- 222 South Seven- 
tieth avenue west: 

"I have been reading vices and virt- 
ues of men and women. I think women 
are too quick to judge and do not 
see their own faults. Let him who is 
guiltless, cast the first stone.' 

•"to my way of thinking the ten com- 
mandments of the Holy Bible are man's 
virtues and if not lived up to are his 
vices, but this applies to women as 
well as men."

Amount Sent to Europe in 

1915 Valued at 


Washington, Feb. 16. — American con- 
densed milk is enjoying a vogue in Eu- 
rope that it never knew in peaceful 
times. The experts from this country 

in 1915 amounted to 76.000,000 pounds 
valued at J6. 000. 000, according to fig- 
ures furni.^hed by the bureau of for- 
eign and domestic commerce, and the 
bulk of these exports went to Europe. 
In normal times the value of con- 
densed milk sold abroad varies be- 
tween $1,000,000 and 12,000,000, and or- 
dinarily the best customers are Cuba, 
Panama, China and Mexico. 

The increased exports of condensed 
milk to Europe are easy to explain, 
vmder the circumstances, but there has 
been an increase in Imports from Eu- 
ropean countries that is puzzling. 
Italy's recent participation in the 
American trade lias caused some com- 
ment, but the fact that Holland and 
Switzerland sold much larger quanti- 
ties of milk in the United States in 
1916 than rver before is considered 
more remarkable, for these two coun- 
tries have accesss to practically all 
markets in Europe. The total imports 
into the United fc-tatfs from all coun- 
tries in 1916 were valued at practically 
?2, 000. 000, or one-third of the exports, 
and although Canada furnished more 
than half, Holland did a business ap- 
proximating ?800,000 as against less 
than $300,000 the year previous. Switz-- 
erland now is .«ellir.g to us at a rate of 
$260,000 a year, where formerly prac- 
tically ho milk came from that coun-

Virtues Easy to Find. 

Mr.". L. M.: "It seems so much easier 
to find ten manly virtues, than to try 
to discover ten vices in a man. 

"First of all, a man should be a 
gentleman, when he will naturally be 
possessed of the following virtues: 

"1. Cleanliness of speech as well as 
person. 'Cleanliness is godliness.' 

"2. Chivalry. Respect for womanly 
dignity and chastity. If a woman for- 
gets her sex, she should not expect 
a roan to remember it, but a real man 
always does. 

"3. Bravery. Fearlessness, coolness 
in time of danger. 

"4. Nobility of soul. To be mag- 
nanimous to those whom he has van- 
quished; to point the way to better 
and higher things to those who have 

"6. Frugality. Prudence, without be- 
ing niggardly. 

"6. Self denial. When necessary to 
provide for those who are dependent 
on him. Sacrifice is the highest tvpe of 

"7. Charity. Love for the poor, the 
destitute, the afflicted. 'For the great- 
est of these is charity.' There are 
many men in Duluth, who respond al- 
ways generously to help relieve the 
Bufferings of the poor, (iod bless these 
noble men. 

"8. Patriotism. Love of country. 
Honoring his government and his flag 
"'Breathes there a man with soul so 

Who never to himself hath said 
This is my own, my native land.* 

"9. Temperance in all things, for 
his own sake and the sake of itioav 
who come after him. 

"10. Faith in God. Reverence for His 
holy name, and all sacred tbinffs, which

I place the company'^ product for some 
lime in the, future.' All orders ff.r a 
' big part of the Northwest will be 
' shipped from the local plant whan it 
has got into full operation according; 
i to present plans. 

I Construction work on the plant has 
' been rapidly push^ during the last 
' eight months. Every machine that has 
arrived has been iiistulled as soon as 
possible after its arrival »nd but for 
the dvlay in receiving considerable of 
the material t\\e plant would have been 
op<^rating probably on Feb. 1. It 
I probably will be iate in March or early 
In April before the J>lant will be turn-

the time being the clinkers will be the 
principal product made. 

When the plant is complete and of a 

fill capacity basis It will be making 

4,000 barrels of cehu-nt d-iily. This is 

equivalent to l,bi<KOO(i pounds. The 

*1 raw material is on the 4.000 barrel

Officials of the plant feel confident 
that by Monday the first process of 
the cement making, that of the manu- 
facture of the first cllnker.s. will take 
place. With the exception of a few 
minor details everything is in readi- 
ness to start. 

For a short time only ot^ of the 
four monster kilns will be operated. 
The others will be put In readiness as 
soon as posi^ible In order to bring 
the plan to a full capacitv basis. 

The raw material will be received 
directly from the Duluth steel plant. 
It is from thf plant thq,t all of the slag 
to be used will be taken. Itwlll re- 
quire an average of about 675 tons ot 
slag dally to keep the plant In full 
optratlon. It will also be necessary 
to use about 800 tons of lime.stone and 
200 tons of coal to make the cement 
when the plant is on a full capacity 
basis. The material will be brought 
directly to the company's monster 
storage bins. Separate bins have been 
provided for each material .the stuff 
being dumped Into the bins from hop- 
per cars. 

Coal In Cruahed. 

The coal will be put through a 
crushing process which will r*»duce the 
size to not over 1 »* Inches. The coal 
is then plac.'d into the dryers where 
It Is put through a heating process. 
These drvers are five feet in diameter 
and fifty feet long. F'rom tlu-se the 
coal Is removed snd pulvi-rlzed and 
the dust wliich by this time has be- 
come hV^hlv combustible is used for

Ill Changes Bat One Aeeepted. 
The communication was received by 
the ambassador late last night. All of 
the changes suggested by the Anieri- 
c i-i government, except one, have been 
adopted in the new draft and Teutonic 
officials here apparently are certain 
thit it win prove satisfactory to the 
United States. ■^^'hiIe the nature of the 
exception was not disclosed, it was be- 
Ikved that the wording used with ref- 
erence to the conduct of reprls.als had 
been modiflfd. It was not regarded as 
material in Teutonic circles. 

Germany la understood to have 
agreed to the suggestion of the United 
States that she substitute the words 
"recognizes liability" for the word 
"assumes liability" In the tentative 
draft of the communication to settle 
the Lusitanta case.

We arc so ased to thinking^ of Lydi* 
E. Pinkham't Vegetable Compound aa 
A remedy exclusively for female ills that 
we are apt to overlook the fact that it 
is one of the best remedies for disordera 
of the stomach. 

For stomach trouble of women it is 
especially adapted, as it works in com- 
plete harmony with the female organ- 
ism, since it contains the extracts of the 
best tonic roots and herbs. It tones up 
the digestive system, and increases the 
appetite and strength. Here is what 
one woman writes showing what this 
medicine does : — 

Newfield. N. Y.— "I am so pleased 
to say I can recommend Lydia E. Pink- 
ham's Vegetable Compound as an eco- 
nomical and beneficial remedy in most 
ailments pertaining to women. At 
least I found it so by only taking two 
bottles. I had indigestion in a bad 
form and I am now feeling in the best 
of health and owe it all to Lydia E. 
Pinkbam's Vegetable Compound."— 
Mrs. Burr WnxuMS, R.D.No.29, New- 
field, N.Y. 

Many women auffer from that "all 
gone feeling," and "feel so faint,'' 
while doing their work. Ten chances 
to one their digestive system is all out 
of order. A tablespoonful of Lydia E. 
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound aftei 
each meal should completely remedy thii 
condition in a few dayt* 

this morning. One of the bondsmen 
admitted that Mr. Power had placed 
himself into the case at the request of 
iron range friends and because of his 
friendship for Mr. Smith. 

Mr. Smith's personal effects in the 
state treasurer's office have been 
turned over to him. 

Public Examiner Fritz, who is still 
taking up the affairs of the state 
treasurer's office, said today that noth- 
ing would be given out until the ex- 
amination was com%>leted.

FaeeN Critical Period. 

The TTnited Stated faces one o< the 
most critical periods In Us history, and 
the destiny of the republic for a cen- 
tury to come may well be determined 
by the conduct of the government and 
the sentiment of the people as exer- 
cised and expressed during the next 
four years. United States Senator 
James W. Wads worth, Jr., told the 
convention today. Senator Wadsworth 
addressed the convention as its perma- 
nent chairman. He declared that only 
the European war had saved the coun- 
try from being now "in the depths of 
the blackest kfnd of Industrial depres- 
sion" and declared that unless a pro- 
tective tariff Is creatt'd there will come 
from foreign sources, after the signing 
of peace, an Industtial Invasion such 
as the country haa. never yet experi- 

Senator Wadsworth touched briefly 
upon the DemocraUc^ policies toward 
the Mexican and Pkittppine questions, 
declaring that, "fiffhlly or w^rongly," 
the people of ottier nations regard 
Americans today '.'as lacking In deter- 
mination, lacking tn virility, shrinking 
from those responaibflliti^ea and obli- 
gations which must come to every 
great nation." '' »' "

dent of the Duluth, Mlssabe & North- 
ern railroad; Howard Johnson, audi- 
tor of the Duluth & Iron Range rail- 
road. In the absence of President F. E. 
House, and J. H. McLean, general man- 
ager of the Oliver Iron Mining com- 

By companies, the numbers that will 
come In under the wage scale increase 
are: Oliver Iron Mining company, 12.- 
000: Duluth, Mlssabe & Northern road, 
1 400 to 1,500, and Duluth & Iron 
Rang.\ 1,400 to 1.500. 

The two railroads, constituent com- 
panies of the Steel corporation, will 
make wage Increases which "^'l}^ 
amount to, in round numbers, $108,000 
a year. The Oliver Iron Mining com- 
pany's increase comes in such a way 
, that It is impossible for Mr. McLean 
to make an estinxate of the amount in- 
volved at this time, but It is known to 
be very large. Considering tliat the 
increase of wages of the 3,000 railroad 
men means an additional J158,000 a 
year, It will be realized that an in- 
crease in the 12.000 employes of the 
mining division of the Steel corpora- 
tion will mean an immense total sum. 
Inereaiie in CJenerai. 

The wage Increase was determined 
on by the chief officers of the cor- 
poration shortly before the first of the 
year, and Chairman E. H. Oary an- 
nounced that It would go Into effect 
In all the corporation's constituent 
companies on Feb. 1. and much inter- 
est has been felt In this part of the 
country, where some of the chief sub- 
sidiaries of the big corporation are 
In operation. . i.^..„ 

In all Instances of increase, mye 
and elsewhere, the company's head.s. 
In making the Increase, have taken 
into consideration length of service 
and efficiency of employes. 

General Manager McLean of the 
ver Iron Mintng company, who an- 
nounced some weeks ago that that 
company would put the increase into 
effect on Feb. 1, said today that he 
is unable to tell what the increase 
will be 

"It win affect about 12,000 em- 
ployes," said he, "but as we employ 
men under different circumstances than 
the railroads do, it is hard to estimate 
In advance how much the increase will 
be. However, It will be substantially 
large, I can say that." 

StateuieKts of ReadM. 

President McGonagle of the Duluth, 
Ml<«sabe & Northern road and Auditor 
Johnson of the Duluth & Iron Range 
road Issued formal statements on the 
matter. The following is that of 
President McGonagle: 

"The Duluth, Mlssabe & Northern. 
Railway company has arranged to ad-

ita employes to conform with wages 
paid by other companies who have al- 
ready increased wages or are about to 
do so. 

"The wage adjustriient Is effective 
Feb 1. 1916, and affects approximately

The schooner struck the Yumuri in 
the port bow, fell off and struck her a 
second time. The schooner's Jlbboom 
caught on the fore rigging aud broke 
her jibs. A few davits of the Yumuri 
were smashed. After the passengers

Maok was quoted as saying that he

most formidable batsmen in the game. 
He was the star in tlie world's series

two circuit drives which virtually gave 
his team the championship.

Baker, the home-run hitter and hero 
of several world's championship con-

Baker, in a statement, declared that 
when he announced his retirement 
from baseball a year ago, he meant It

of Cambridge, Md., a mutual friend of 
C. Mack and himself with convincing 
him that he "owed it to himself, Mr.

Kelleys ,..-*.. 4 2 

Big Duluths 3 3 

Northerns 1 6 

The crack Fenton-Duby basket ball I 
quint last night found its true stride 
In the Commercial basket ball league j 
race, when the sporting goods men 
downed their old rivals, the' Kfllty, 
hardware aggregation by the =core of 
2-1 to 5. The Kelleys were leading at 
the conclusion of the first half by 
the score of fi to 4, but the Fe ntons 
came back strong, sweeping their op- 
ponents off their feet and piling up a 
total of twenty points while they held j 
their rivals to no scores. It was one i 
of the best "come backs" ever wit- j 
ne.-^sed at the Y. M. C. A. i 

It had originally been intended to I 
close the season schedule last evening, 
but the directors of the league de- 
cided to play another round, that i», j 
to have each team play each other 
team again. The new schedule will 

close on March 7. 

Up to last night the Kelleys were ^ 
leading the league, but their defeat ati 
the hands of the Fenton-Dubys makes! 
a tie for first place. The Big Duluths, | 
due to thf^lr victory last evening, are 
not far behind the leaders. There Is I 
some great ba.sket ball being played in! 
the league and there will be a hot fight, 
for the championship from now on. 
The Kelleys have noi been disheartened I 
by their defeat last night and they j 
will be back as strong as ever. Next 
week the Northerns meet the Kelleys i 
and the Fenton-Dubys clash with the | 
fast Big Duluths. Both latter teams j 
were winners in last evenings gamea ; 
and their meeting next week should' 
result in a great game. 

Dworshak, the big Kelley center and 
the pillar of the hardware team, was i 
unable to play last evening and this is j 
given as the cause of the poor show- . 
ing made by Ihe erstwhile league lead- 
ers last night. The Fenton-Dubys, ; 
however, showed real class and dt - 
served to win. Ray Fenton, star of 
the old days, showed that he had not 
forgotten all about basket ball. He 
caged four brilliant goals and was the 
star of the game. 

The Northern»-Big Duluth game was 
a hot affair from the start. The flr-t 
half concluded 12 to 9 with the Big 
Duluths on the long end and the final , 
whistle found the clothiers leading b.v 
a 27-to-19 score. This contest proved 
to be the most interesting affa:r of 
the evening and at timeg developed 
into a corker. Oliver and Bill Nelson

and work with some of the big stars 
of the game.

The Olive Tablet Company, Columbus, 

! Pittsburgh. Pa„ Feb. 16. — The in- 
junction which was granted last sum- 
mer restraining the local Federal 
league club from using or disposing 

: of Sanford Buik, a pitcher, who jumped 
from the Indianapolis association team, 
was dissolved here late yesterday. The 
motion to have the order removed was 
made by counsel for the Indianapolis 
team who said that the differences 

, between the two clubs had been aml- 

I cably settled. 

The cost of the proceedings were 

! paid by the local club owners. Burk 
was recently sold to the Minneapolis 

I American association club. ' 

A large number of rinks have al- 
ready entered the Blaze of Glory event, 
Avhit.h will be staged at the curling 
club In the near future. The "blaze" 
gives every rink a chance to get In 
one more event and is a sort of crdwn- 
ing glory to the season's play. Thii 
year the event premise* to outdo all 
past efforts. 

Ralph Bradley and Clough Gates 
will meet in the local rink this evening 
in the finals of the Head of the Lakes 
event. The game is attracting a great 
deal of inteiftl and is expected to 
prove a corking contest. 

Bradley's rink has been defeated here 

but once during the present season. 
Clough Gates has easily the best rink 
on the other side of the bay. The con- 
test will bring the best curlers on 
either side of the bay together. 

Following are the list of rinks en-

During all of the American Hockey 
league's season the Calumet septet has 
played a corking game. The septet 
that is to oppose the Duluth boys this 
evening Is composed of the pick of Cal- 
umet's stars. As Linder is e.^pecially 
anxious to make a great showiiiK heie, 
the spectators are rather certain to 
witness a great game. 

Duluth Im PriMed. 

It is believed that the Duluth boys 
learned quite a bit of hockey dining 
the St. Paul game. The home kids 
went into that contest suffering from 
stage fright. With confidence and ex- 
perience gained from that game, and 
benefited by several nights of strenu- 
ous work under the direction of Andy 
Grenner, the home boys should play a 
great game against the invaders from 
the north country. 

The youngsters here are acquiring 
the fine points of the game in rapid 
manner. With the pick of the local 
talent especially trained for a veal 
contest, the lovers of one of the great- 
est of all winter games should be 
treated to a real contest in the meeting 
set for tonight.

X«»w York. Feb. 16. — The policies of 
President Wilson and the Democratic 
administration toward the international 
situations arising out of the Kuropean 
war and the Mexican disturbances, and, 
HA relating to dome-stic conditions, to- 
ward the tartir, were atacked by For- 
mer United States Senator Kllhu Root 
today in hi.s address as temporary 
chairman of the New Y'ork Slate K''- 
publican convention, in assembly here. 

aNo other presidential election since 
1864 has been so fraught with conse- 
quences so vital to national ife as the 
one now approaching. Mr. Uoot said, 
and all orainary considerations which 
play so great a part in presidential 
campaigns "are and ought to be 
dwarfed Into insignificance." He 

promised that if the Republican party 
is returned to power the people may 
expect a foreign policy which will 
leave "no doubt anywhere in the 
world of America's purpose and cour- 
age to protect and defend her inde- 
pendence, her territory and the Uvea 
and just rights of her ciiizens under 
the laws of uutions;" and that the peo- 
ple may expect, also, that "the govern- 
ment will stand for full and adequate 
preparation by the American peopl.e for 
their own defence." 

**Tiir«'C Faaaainental Urront." 
Mr. Hoot chargfd the present admin- 
istration with "the lack ot foresight to 
make timely provision for backing up 
of American diptoma'-y by actual or as- 
sured military force;" with "the for- 
feiture of the world's respect for our 
assertion of rights by pursuing the 
policy of making threats and of failing 
to make them good:" and with "a loss 
of the moral forces of the civilized 
world through failure to truly interpret 
to the world the spirit of the American 
democracy in its attitude toward the 
terrible events which acconipanled the 
^arly stages of the war." 'These, said 
Mr. Root, were the administration's 
"three fundamental errors." 

DisJcusstng the domestic situation be- 
fore the European war began. Mr. Root 
declared that during the eighteen 
months of Democratic control there 
had been "a steady decrease in Amer- 
ican production. In exports and In rev- 
enues, and a steady increase in Im- 
ports and expenditures." Enterprise 
had halted, he asserted, and new un- 
dertakings no longer made their ap- 
pearance, and the country's productive 
Industries "were laboring under a mis- 
tit tariff devised by the Democratic 
party in a spirit of suspicion, distrust 
and hostility toward American business 
enterpride," and transportation and 
corrtnierce iiad become "dull and de- 
spondent." The tariff commission 
created under Republican legislation to 
ascertain the facts upon which tariff 
laws should be based. Mr. Root said. 
had been driven out of busine.'^s and no 
substitute provided. At Washington, 
he declared, "there was a nervous 
dread lest somebody make money." and 
"envy of business success" was an ele- 
ment in the framing of legislation and 
the administration of the lawa Mr. 
Root continued: 

"The great war has not changed the 
les.Mon which we had already learned 
when It began. It has but obscured 
further demonstration. It has caused 
an enormous demand for some things 
which the United States Is able to pro- 
duce In large quantities, and in tliese 
lines of production, while other Indus- 
tries still languish, there have been ex- 
tensive employment of labor, great ex- 
ports and a great influx of money. But 
tills Is temporary, it must soon cease, 
and when the factories have stopped 
and their laborers are no longer em- 
ployed we must deal with a situation 
for which wise forethought should 
niake provision. 

Freed Fr«M CoMpetltion. 
"More important still, the war has 
paralyzed the peaceful industries of all 
Europe, and has stopped that competi- 
tive foreign production which In July, 
1914. had already entered American 
markets to supersede American prod- 
ucts under the tariff law of 1913. The 
war has thus given to American prod- 
ucts an immunity from competition far 
more effective than any possible pro- 
tective tariff. But that is temporary, 
and when the war is over, when 
elgn production begins again. 
American market, compared 
poverished Europe, will be

tver before the object of desire and ef- 
fort, and we shall become the dumping 
ffruund of the '\vorld to the destruction 
of our own industries unless that la 
prevented by a wise and competent 

Taking up foreign relations. Mr. 
Root said that for the first time within 
the memory of men now living these 
relations "are recognized as vital." He 
took up first the Mexican problem, re^ 
viewing the situation when President 
Wilson was inaugurated. 

"His dutv then was plain," Mr. Root 
declared. "It was. first to use his pow- 
ers as president, to secure protection 
for the lives and property of Ameri- 
cans In Mexico and to require that the 
rules of law and stipulations of trea^ 
ties should be observed by Mexico to- 
wards the United States and its citi- 
zens. His duty was. necond. as the 
head of a foreign power to re.'^pect the 
independence of Mexico, to refrain 
I from all Interference with her internal 
affairs, from all attempt at domination 
except as he was justified by the law 
of nations for the protection of Ameri- 
can rights. 

Atendoned Both Daties. 
"The president of the United States 
failed to observe either of those duties. 
He deliberately abandoned them both 
and followed an entirely different and 
inconsistent purpose. He intervened in 
Mexico to aid one faction in civil strife 
against another. He undertook to puU 
down Huerta and set Carranza up In 
his place. Huerta was in possession. 
He claimed to be the constitutional 
president of Mexico. He certainly was 
the de facto president of Mexico. 
Rightly or wrongly, good or bad. he 
was there." 

Mr. Root reviewed our subsequent 

relations with Mexico, declaring that 

L the United States "Intervened in Mex- 

' Ico to control the Internal affairs by 

threat, b yeconomlc pressur©, and by 

I force of arms." and that the American 

' government "ignored, condoned, the 

murder of American men and the rape 

! of American women and the destruo 

we are now bated for what we did, fort- 
our feeble and. Irresolute failure to) | 
protect the lives and rights of our citi- 
zens. No flag Is so dishonored and no 
citizenship so little worth the claiming 
in Mexico as ours. And that Is why we 
have failed in Mexico. 

"And for the death and outrage, the 
suffering and ruin of our own brethren, 
the hatred and c6ntempt for our coun- 
try, and the dishonor of our name in 
that land, the administration at Wash- 
ington shares responsibility with the 
inhunmn brutes with whom it made 
common causp." , 

The K«ro|»*an rollcy. 
Mr. Root turned to the administra- 
tion's European policy, declaring that 
some of the people wer,e "dissatisfied 
for specific reasons. 8ora»=" with a vague 
Impression that our diplomacy has 
been inadequate. At thl» point In his 
address the speaker enumerated what 
he declared were the administration's 
"three fundamental errors." 

"When our government failed to tell 
the truth about Belgium, it lost the 
opportunity for leadership of the moral 
sense of the American people, and It 
lost the power which a knowledge of 
that leadership and a sympathetic re- 
sponse from the moral wense of the 
world would have gl»<»n >to our di- 
plomacy. When our government failed 
to make any provision ^whatever for 
defending its rights l« case they 
should be trampled upoa. it lost the 
power which a belief in lt.'=i readiness 
and will to maintain its rights would 
have given to Us dlplorwatic represen- 
tations. When our grtvemment gave 
notice to Germany would de- 
stroy American lives and American 
ships at Its pf^rll. our words, which 
would have been potent If sustained 
by adequate preparatirm to 'make them 
good, and by the preatlpe and author- 
ity of the moral leadershi-p of a great 
people. In a great caune, were treated 
with a contempt whith should have

Minneapolis is busily engaged In 
"wiping Duluth off the map" as a ship- 
ping and receiving port, and is enlisting 
the aid of Ashland, "Wis., to which port 
it promises untold wealth if the town 
will make concessions so that the Soo 
road, by building In there direct from 
Minneapolis, will make it a port of call 
by package freighters. The leasing of 
a boat by Minneapolis and Ashland is 
talked of In this connection. Recently 
a delegation of Minneapolis business 
men toured to Ashland and told the 
people of the latter city what will be 
done for them if they Join hands with 
Minneapolis in Ihe way of concessions. 
The fact that the differentials in 
freights will be maintained anyway, 
does not se^-m to have entered Into the 
calculations, and that Ashland has 
overlooked the fact that being a trans- 
fer point does not make a city 
or bring the dollars to the city, seema 
to have been lost sight of In the gen- 
eral excitement. As an instance of 
the agitation, one Minneapolis paper 
had this in its issue of yesterday.

"The boat-leasing plan is the latest 
idea offered by the men who are seek-

will be made a regular port of call of 
all the lake ships and who arranged 
for the visit of Minneapolis business 
men last week. The city of Ashland 
has leased docks which will remain un- 
der municipal control until 1932. This 
will insure boat lines against discrim- 
ination in favor of a few lines or boats. 
All win be given equal rights for the 
use of the dock and proposed ware- 
houses. New approaches to the dock 
already are being built.

of Ashland, who has sailed on Lake

if Mixed With Sulphur It 

Darkens So Naturally 

Nobody Can Tell. 

The old-time mixture of Sage Tea 
and Sulphur for darkening gray, 
streaked and faded hair Is grand- 
mother's treatment, and folks are 
again using it to keep their hair a 
good, even color, which is quite sensi- 
ble, as we are living in an age when a 
youthful appearance is of the greatest 

Nowadays, though, we don't have 
the troublesome task of gathering the 
sage and mu.'?;3y mixing at home. All 
drug stores sell the ready-to-use prod- 
uct called "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur 
Compound" for about 50 cents a bot- 
tle. It is very popular becau-se no- 
body can discover it has been applied. 
Simply moisten your comb or a soft 
brush with»it and draw this through 
your hair, taking one small strand at 
a time; by morning: the gray hair dis- 
appears, but what delights the ladies 
with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is 
that, besides beautifully darkening 
the hair after a few applications, it 
also produces that soft luster and ap- 
pearance of abundance which Is so 
attractive; besides, prevents dandruff.
